Making the best use of what’s in the gardens is truly the Connecticut Country House way. Right now, perfect for the holiday, in all its red berry glory, is a Winterberry tree.

Earlier in the season, her green to red leaves are part of the pretty package. Later, in early winter, it’s all about her brilliant red berries on bare grey branches. Cut a few and add to any holiday décor or simply place a cut bunch in a favorite container!
