    persisting into winter

    Winterberry has beautiful deep geen foilage, white clustered flowers, then bright red fruit persisting into winter?

    II need a "simpler" way to say "persisting into winter". Could you help me rephrase the last part of the sentence?
    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: persisting into winter

    You could say that the bright red fruit survives well into winter. Or you and you students could just learn the word "persist", in my opinion a better idea.
