Question: If I order a Gold Coast Holly, which I understand is a male plant, what would be a female plant that would be compatible in size and growing conditions? I would like to have a total of three plants. Would I be better off with 1 male and 2 female, or 2 male and 1 female to have the maximum berry production? Thank you for your assistance. Carolyn Mead
Answer: The female counterpart to your Gold Coast Holly is Ilex aquifolium `Argenteo Marginata`. For the most berries, plant two females and one male.
Best wishes with your landscape!
