|I have recently purchased an English Holly upright standard|
that is formed like a tree rose. My garden is very small
I now need a small male holly bush so I can continue having the red berries. If you could give me a few ideas on the bush I should order I can then order through my nursery they carry plants from Monrovia. Thank you
|Your Ilex aquifolium female will need a male Ilex aquifolium for pollination. I'd recommend 'Monvila', the Gold Coast English Holly. This male is slow-growing to 4-6' high and wide; the dark green leaves are edged with yellow. This is the smallest of the male English hollies and would be perfect for the site you describe.|
Best wishes with your garden!
