I just received a Edward J. Stevens holly to help pollinate my Nellie Stevens holly.
The Edward J. Stevens holly I received has a berry on it. I didn't think they had any berries.
Does anyone know if they are supposed to have berries?

Hello, I see your post is from 2016. Was wondering if you found a solution. I'm looking for a Edward J Stevens holly also but no luck so far. But I would have the same questions as you. I would not expect a berry on a male holly. I surprised you got no response. I was told a Buford holly is a pollinator for Nellie Stevens but it also has berries. Kind of confusing to me.

I bought a couple Burfords years ago. I was told at some point they may put 2-3 shoots together in a pot, so anyone planting a Burford should get 'some' berries. Maybe this is done with some other hollies?
Don't expect lansdale to come back
Plant it and they will come.
