The Q&A Archives: Male pollination needed for Savannah Holly?

Question: I just purchased three Monrovia brand Savannah Hollies. Do these need a male holly to pollinate them? If so, does it matter which one I choose? Thank you.

Answer: Ilex x attenuata 'Savannah' Holly needs a male in order to produce berries. Look for Ilex x attenuata "Fosteri" or "Male #4" in your local nursery. Best wishes with your new plants!
