Decorate for the Holidays with Scarlett and Rhett Winterberry Holly

"My, Captain Butler, don't you look dashing today!"
"'Rhett Butler' Meets 'Scarlett O'Hara' and the Results are Explosive." What's this? An entry in our contest for funniest and most succinct summary of Gone with the Wind? No, actually.  

This headline comes from a gardening article which reveals a charming little piece to warm our Windie hearts: there are two strands of winterberry holly named Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler. And, naturally, this brazen combination is tailor made for each other and produces quite stunningly red holly berries. So, dear gardeners, you can now truly bring Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler home for the holidays! Isn't that thrilling?  


  1. If only Mother Ellen would have revealed the more enjoyable sides of the birds and the bees story to Scarlett... Funny post, thanks for refraining from making dirty jokes! I will too then :P

  2. Oh it was no small feat to refrain from dirty jokes in the post, especially since one gardening site described the Rhett plant thusly: "Rhett Butler- Good pollinator for Scarlett O'Hara :P
