The Q&A Archives: Holly Tree Does Not Produce Berries

Question: My holly tree is very pretty & full & blooms (I trim it round yearly) but it never produces the bright red berries. Why?

Answer: Hollies are either male or female and you need one of each for the female to produce berries. Try to determine which you're growing so you can get a mate. With both a male and a female in your landscape, you're sure to have berries.
