'Sparkleberry’ is a deciduous hybrid female winterberry that typically matures to 6-10’ tall and as wide.  It is noted for its dense, heavy fruiting of bright red berries, with good retention of the fruit throughout winter. This is a slow-growing, deciduous, multi-stemmed, suckering shrub with an upright-rounded habit. Lustrous dark green leaves (to 3” long) turn yellow-bronze in fall. Flowers, if properly pollinated, give way to a profuse crop of glossy red berries (5/16” diameter) in fall. Showy berries will persist throughout the winter (hence the common name) and often to early spring. Berries provide considerable impact and interest to the winter landscape. Berries are a food source for birds. Male clone is 'Apollo'.
