Red Sprite is a deciduous winterberry cultivar that is a large-berried, slow-growing, dwarf shrub with an upright, rounded habit. Typically grows only 2-3′ tall. Glossy medium green leaves drop in early autumn with no appreciable fall color. The whitish flowers are relatively inconspicuous. This female winterberry, as the common name suggests, produces profuse red berries which are extremely attractive in fall and winter, often persisting to early spring unless consumed by local bird populations
