Pollenizer for Ilex x 'Rock Garden'

2 months ago

So if you loathed huge, prickly hollies, but found yourself with a very dwarf female holly, and you wanted berries, what would be your pick for a male holly to pollenize this reportedly complex hybrid?

The best solution I can think of is to talk my neighbor into planting a huge, prickly, male holly! But seriously, I found Ilex 'Little Rascal' online, y'all reckon he would get the job done? Is he readily available?

My Ilex 'Rock Garden' is in a container and will probably remain there for a long time unless she grows more rapidly than expected. This is USDA zone 8 Willamette Valley, OR.
