Possumhaw Holly, 'Warren's Red'

Possumhaw is a deciduous holly that can be a shrub or small tree. It is native on bottomlands and moister upland sites in the southeastern U.S. It is better adapted to higher pH soils than Ilex verticillata. Female plants produce abundant crops of showy red berries which hold well through the winter on the bare branches. This variety has more upright branching, abundant red berries, and lusturous dark green leaves which are later to drop than those of other Ilex decidua cultivars. Plant a male Ilex decidua nearby for pollenation and berry set. Warren Nursery in Oklahoma introduced this clone.
