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, but they will be there. Since your hollies are males, they will never produce berries, but they are attractive plants and I think they would make a terrific border around a patio.
