Question: What male holly would be a proper pollenizer for EBONY MAGIC? HOLLY? I have Blue Prince Blue Holly already growing in my back garden, would this cultivar be appropriate. What would you suggest?

Thank you.

Answer: 'Ebony Magic' is Ilex x meserveae, one of the Blue or Meserve Hollies. Any male from the blue group will pollinate a female from this same group. Blue holly males include 'Blue Boy', 'Blue Prince', 'Blue Stallion', and 'China Boy'. Hope this clears up any confusion! Best wishes with your garden.
