10 Plants With Really Neat Fruit
Some of my favorite fruiting plants:
1.) Purple beautyberry. Arching shrub with BB-sized clusters of glossy lavender fruits in fall. Sun to shade.
2.) Winterberry holly. Females of this leaf-dropping holly that just drips with bright-red pea-sized berries fall into winter. Sun to shade.
3.) Viburnum ‘Winterthur.’ Berry-size fruits start out blue and ripen black on foliage that turns glossy burgundy in fall. Sun to shade.
4.) Viburnum ‘Cardinal Candy.’ Loaded in fall with big, bright-red berries. Sun to part shade.
5.) Kousa dogwood. Small tree with orange-red fruits that look like warty marbles. Impressive display. Sun to shade.
6.) Juniper ‘Emerald Sentinel.’ Upright bluish-green needled evergreen that’s loaded with powdery blue fruits. Full sun.
7.) Bayberry. Females get pea-sized waxy blue-gray fruits in fall. Sun to shade.
8.) Oregon grape holly. Dark blue fruits hang in clusters like grapes from this holly-like evergreen. Shade to part shade.
9.) Hawthorn. Small tree with nearly marble-sized red-orange fruits that persist much of winter. Sun to light shade.
10.) Holly ‘Red Beauty.’ Upright female holly that’s as densely fruiting as any evergreen holly. Beautiful pyramidal form, too. Sun to part shade.
