Ilex verticillata 'Winter Gold' is an excellent, showy cultivar of winterberry holly with outstanding berries. Without the sharp-spined leaves of species like American holly and deciduous leaves unlike any evergreen holly varieties, 'Winter Gold' is best noted for its attractive golden and rose-tinged berries in the fall and winter. From spring into the summer, winterberry holly produces inconspicuous white flowers that attract many kinds of pollinators.

As an all-female cultivar, 'Winter Gold' must be matched with a late-season male pollinator cultivar like Ilex verticillata 'Southern Gentleman' to produce berries by planting one male per 5 females. Following successful pollination, this cultivar produces attractive, bright golden berries that persist through the fall and winter, supporting bird populations and serving as an incredible addition to cold-season cut arrangements.

Typically reaching six to eight feet tall with a similar spread, Ilex verticillata 'Winter Gold' has an upright growth habit with a vase-like or globular shape. Overall a very versatile plant, 'Winter Gold' is resistant to salt, wet soil, and deer damage, and can be used in rain, pollinator, and children's gardens as well as naturalized areas or woodland/wetland borders. 'Winter Gold' winterberry is an attractive addition to any landscape with its appealing golden-orange berries, and has the ecological appeal to match.
