Was thinking of planting the merry berry holly. Is it both male and female (versus the blue girl and blue boy holly)?

Ilex ?Merry Berry? (Ilex cornuta) is a medium sized holly that does well in full sun to partial shade. ?Merry Berry? is unique in the sense that no male pollinator is required for pollination; however this plant does produce a more abundant crop if a male pollinator is nearby. This cultivar of holly gets approximately 15 feet tall and 10 feet wide. It is extremely heat and drought tolerant, as well as deer resistant.
