Floral Cut Branch

Winterberry cut branches laden with colorful fruit, after leaves have fallen, are used by the floral industry during Fall and Winter holiday seasons.  Colors range from bright red, to peachy yellow to bright yellow.

Certain Winterberry cultivars are valued for decorative branch use because they hold their plump berries and remain fresh much longer than most other cultivars.  Simpson Nursery Company supplies plants to growers who fill acres with winterberry shrubs grown specifically for decorative holiday use.  ‘Winter Red’ and ‘Winter Gold’ are two of the most highly regarded cultivars for cuts; they were selected and introduced to the industry by Bob Simpson.
