Ilex decidua Ilex decidua
(Possumhaw holly)
Be the first to rate this plant
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

While the fresh green leaves and smooth, light gray stems are enough to make possumhaw holly an attractive shrub, the appeal of this plant is more evident in late fall. Bunches of small berries form along the branches and turn bright red as the leaves fall off. Only female plants bear fruit (plant at least one male plant for best berry production), which finally becomes palatable to wildlife in the early spring. Possumhaw tends to sucker from the roots, so it's best to allow it to form a multitrunk screen.

Ilex opaca Ilex opaca
(American holly)
Be the first to rate this plant
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

This erect, evergreen large shrub or tree reaches 40 to 50 feet in height and 20 to 40 feet wide. Leathery dark green leaves have pointy, scalloped edges. Small green berries appear in late summer, maturing to crimson by autumn and persisting through the winter. Some ripen to yellow or orange. Use American holly as a specimen tree or in a woodland garden.

This compact deciduous holly reaches up to 8 feet tall with equal or greater spread. Pale yellow berries ripen in September and stand out on reddish-brown branches, persisting into early winter and attracting birds.

Ilex verticillata Ilex verticillata
(Black alder, Winterberry)
(1 user review)
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

This plant is a suckering shrub or small tree with toothed, pointy, bright green leaves. It bears white flowers in spring, which are followed by spherical dark red to scarlet berries that persist through the winter. Some fruit ripens to yellow or orange.

Ilex verticillata 'Sunsplash' Ilex verticillata 'Sunsplash'

Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

The one thing that I always thought would make winterberry a more interesting plant is better foliage. What the plant does have are vibrant red berries in fall and winter, so most of us forgive its unremarkable appearance during the other six months of the year. The cultivar ‘Sunsplash’, however, lets you have your cake and eat it, too. It’s beautiful not only when it’s fruiting but also during the rest of the year, when its bright gold, white, and green foliage shines brightly. Unlike many other variegated plants that just have coloring around the margins of their leaves, the foliage of ‘Sunsplash’, as its name implies, is literally splashed all over with color.

Ilex vomitoria Ilex vomitoria
(Yaupon holly)

Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Yaupon holly is an upright, irregularly branched, evergreen shrub or small tree with ovate, toothed, shiny dark-green leaves and gray branches. Profuse, transluscent scarlet fruit persists through the winter.

Attractive, glossy, dark green leaves and red flowers are similar to those of Florida anise, but this plant flowers continuously from spring to fall. Red fruit follows.

Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Dime-sized, drooping, bell-shaped yellow flowers have a faint anise fragrance, but they’re hidden under new foliage in June. 

Impatiens auricoma 'Jungle Gold' Impatiens auricoma 'Jungle Gold'
('Jungle Gold' impatiens)
Be the first to rate this plant

Yellow blooms resembling orchids and large, glossy leaves makes 'Jungle Gold' an interesting addition to containers, where it will bloom more profusely than if it were in the ground. It performs well in shade.

Impatiens balsamina and cvs. Impatiens balsamina and cvs.
(Rose-balsam, Touch-me-not)
(1 user review)

Impatiens namchabarwensis Impatiens namchabarwensis
(Sapphire jewelweed, Blue diamond impatiens)
Be the first to rate this plant
Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

Sapphire jewelweed's serrated leaves are the color of polished jade, while the flowers are a remarkable sapphire blue. Far different from the traditional flat-disk shape of most bedding impatiens, the flower shape of this impatiens resembles an elegant crane in flight. Sapphire jewelweed grows remarkably fast, reaching almost 2 feet tall and wide. It shines in a woodland garden.

Hardiness Zones: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11

This sweet potato vine has lime green leaves that light up in the sunlight and look paler in part shade. 'Margarita' is a real eye-catcher growing over the edge of a wall or creeping along the fringes of a border. -Julia Jones, Designing with Annuals, Fine Gardening issue #120

This sweet potato vine is blessed with leaves that are edged in pink. Use it in containers, as a groundcover, or in beds and borders. Growing it with pink-flowered plants calls attention to the variegation.
