I went to my favorite nursery looking for service berry bushes to buy but they did not carry them. They suggested Winterberry shrubs for bird attracting. I have had the evergreen hollies at my previous residence but have never tried the deciduous hollies. The shrubs did have green berries on them.
I know you need at least 2 plants, one male and as many females as wanted. Do the berries ripen later in the summer or are they fall ripening?? Do the birds really like these berries or are they only eaten in the dead of winter, after all favorite foods are gone??
Thanks for any help. I have found one can not always rely on the nursery as they would like to make a sale, not necessarily point you to the best shrub.
