The Q&A Archives: Pollinator for Winterberry 'Sparkleberry'

Question: I have just purchased several of your 'Sparkleberry' Winterberry hollies, and need a male pollinator. Unfortunately, the nursery I bought them from does not carry 'Apollo,' which is the recommended pollinator. Do you know of any St. Louis-area Monrovia suppliers who carry 'Apollo'? (If it is even a cultivar that you supply...) Failing that, do you know if 'Jim Dandy' would be an appropriate pollinator? Thanks, Sue P.S. If you maintain a database of email addresses, I would appreciate it if you would NOT add mine to it. Thanks!

Answer: You have your choice of male pollinators for your 'Sparkleberry'. Along with 'Apollo', you can use 'Dwarf Male' (2' tall), 'Jim Dandy', 'Southern Gentleman' and 'Late Male'. I wish I could tell you which local nurseries might have these, but all nurseries order independently and there's no way for me to track their current inventory.
