Re: Ebony Magic Pollenizer

One of your FAQs says: "The Blue Stallions and China Boys won't pollinate your Ebony Magic."

Others say: "You might try one of the male "blue hollies" from the Meserveae group such as Blue Stallion."

Which is the right pollenizer?

'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.
