The Q&A Archives: Blue Prince Holly And Blue Maid Holly

Question: I have just planted a Blue Prince Holly near a Blue Maid Holly. Will these shrubs pollinate or does the Blue Prince require a Blue Princess?


Answer: Maybe. "Blue Prince" is a male holly and is usually sold as the fruiting pair with the "Blue Princess" holly, which is a female. "Blue Stallion" is another good pollen source for the blue hollies and is usually paired with "Blue Maid" but is said to bloom over such a long period that it can be used with any of the females. If there are other blue hollies in your neighborhood you may not need to worry; one male can be sufficient for a number of females.
