The Q&A Archives: Ilex Edward J. Stevens Holly

Question: Hello,

I love your plants and have many in my yard. I would like to find a distributor for Ilex Edward J. Stevens to increase berry production on my Nellie Stevens hollies. Do you grow them? If so, how can I get one. If you don't grow them, can you please tell me who does?

Thank you!

Answer: Monrovia does not grow Edward J. Stevens holly. Your Nellie Stevens is a Chinese holly and can be pollinated by a male Chinese holly, but most female Chinese hollies will produce berries without a male in the neighborhood. If your plant doesn't seem to be producing enough berries, it may just be too young to do so. If you wait a few years, you might be pleasantly surprised at the number of berries it produces.
