(Ilex verticillate) Winterberry (Ilex verticillata), also known as Michigan Holly, is primarily a wetland shrub. It can reach up to 12 feet in height. It prefers wet to moist soil with very poor to moderate drainage. It is salt sensitive. Winterberry transplants well and is fairly resistant to disease and insects. It is also resistant to compact soils. The berries have a high wildlife value for waterfowl and songbirds, but are poisonous to humans. Winterberry needs both male and female plants for berries.
