Can a male Blue Prince Holly produce berries? - Knowledgebase Question

Muskogee, OK
Question by szrtl
March 5, 2006
I purchased a Blue Prince Holly, and at the time I purchased it, there were four or five red berries on the plant.
After planting it in the ground, I noticed the tag clearly said that it was a male plant, for fertilizing female hollies.

Is it possible for a male plant to produce berries, or did I manage to get a female holly after all?

Thank you.

I'm afraid you've gotten a male and if it had berries on it when you purchased it, it was mis-marked. Male hollies do not produce berries. You probably have a Blue Princess holly and as long as there is a male in the vicinity, it will continue to produce berries for you.
