They all possess brightly colored fruits and are an excellent way to brighten the drab winter garden, turning sorry spots into beautiful focal points. Like precious jewels, their nutritious berries sparkle in the winter landscape and will lure hungry birds and squirrels. They are also fun to pick for indoor arrangements or Christmas decor.
