St. Paul, Minn. (Spring 2012) – Spark all-season garden interest with First Editions® Wildfire™ Winterberry. Extremely easy to grow, this Winterberry features pure white flowers that deliver bright red fall fruit that lasts through early winter. Dark green foliage serves as a backdrop for the large berries, creating a spectacular display.

When winter sets in, Wildfire drops its leaves, leaving just the bright berries. Bring the branches indoors for great fall and winter decorating, or leave the berries to provide food for the birds.

Wildfire’s compact, rounded shape makes it an excellent hedge or accent shrub. ‘Southern Gentleman’ is recommended as a pollinator.
