Our fifth episode covers Winterberry Holly, known botanically as Ilex verticillata. Is a plant that seems to come out of the woodwork in winter.
It goes practically unnoticed from spring through late fall, and then all of a sudden it’s a drop-dead gorgeous mass of bright red berries that practically leaps out of the landscape. Plus, it’s native to North America.
Learn more about the origination of the name, Ilex verticillata, and the species in this episode of Every Plant Deserves a Podcast.
