Answer: Your Ilex aquifolium female will need a male Ilex aquifolium for pollination. I'd recommend 'Monvila', the Gold Coast English Holly. This male is slow-growing to 4-6' high and wide; the dark green leaves are edged with yellow. This is the smallest of the male English hollies and would be perfect for the site you describe.
Best wishes with your garden!
