The Q&A Archives: How to care for the little rascal holly (male)?

Question: I recently purchased a little rascal holly (male). Do I need the female to ensure growth?

Answer: Little Rascal Holly is a male and was bred for hardiness, compact growth, and deep purple winter color. There is no female counterpart, but your male shrubs will produce pollen and can pollinate female hollies in the vicinity. The flowers on your shrubs(correctly called inflorescences) will be inconspicuous, but they will be there. Hope this helps clarify things for you.
