Winterberry  (<em>Ilex verticillata</em>)

Winterberry (Ilex verticillata)

Arboretum. This is a native species of shrub that grows primarily in damp areas, and can be quite abundant in some locations such as in Larose Forest. Birds eat the fruit, but generally not until later in the winter. I've seen many cedar waxwings consuming the fruit from this particular shrub in previous years.
