The Q&A Archives: Ebony Magic Holly Pollinator

Question: I have a female ebony magic holly. I am trying to find a male for fruit set. Nobody here on Vancouver Island, Canada seems to have one.

Is it possible to get another type of male holly and have fruit set?

Answer: This is one of the "blue" hollies or Meserve hybrids so you will need a male from that group. "Blue Stallion" is a male that flowers over a long period in spring and is typically recommended as a pollinator for this group of hollies.
