I have little rascal hollies (male). Do I need to have a female (is there such a thing)?

Thank you!

Little Rascal Holly is a male and was bred for hardiness, compact growth, and deep purple winter color. There is no female counterpart, but your male shrubs will produce pollen and can pollinate female hollies in the vicinity. The flowers on your shrubs(correctly called inflorescences) will be inconspicuous, and your plants will never set berries. Hope this helps clarify things for you.
