'Sparkleberry' holly ...
I planted several 'Red Sprite' winterberry hollies, together with a 'Jim Dandy' pollinator, last fall. The local nursery now has 'Sparkleberry', together with the 'Apollo' pollinator. From what I've read, the 'Sparkleberry' seems to produce abundantly more, and larger, berries. The other difference is size: While the 'Red Sprite' and 'Jim Dandy' are typically 3'-4' x 3'-4', the 'Sparkleberry' and 'Apollo' are closer to 6'-10' x 6'-10'.
I'd appreciate comments regarding your experience with these plants, particularly the 'Sparkleberry' and 'Apollo' (since I haven't purchased them as yet). Now for the stupid questions. Will these hollies co-exist well? Do the sizes I list seem relatively accurate? Can they safely be planted now? (I try to plant shrubs in the early fall; however, the nursery has only a few and, based on their track record, won't order any more So it's now or never.)
