Design IdeasRemember, for this female plant to produce luscious red berries, it needs a male pollinator. Ideal for holiday decorations, its creamy variegated leaf is a great accent that brightens the whole plant. Grow as an immense shrub or prune off the lower branches for a charming accent tree. Its pyramidal form is particularly beautiful as a specimen in snow country. Makes a great privacy screen and prickly enough to discourage intruders.
