Karl shared his insight into growing stellar Ilex verticillata (Winterberry Holly); Symphoricarpos (Snowberry); Philadelphus (Mock Orange) and Hydrangea paniculata in this Live chat with Q&A.
Learn about why you don't have to worry about deer eating your Ilex verticillata, but maybe watch out for moose; how to identify the sales potential for different colors of berries in your local market; and how many stems to expect on your Symphoricarpos year after year.
