and Berries of the
Grace Hybrid American Hollies
As with all hollies, a male pollinator plant
is necessary for the female plant flowers to develop into
berries. One male plant can produce enough pollen to service
many female plants. Remember that the male plants have no
fruit, so all energy will go to growth instead of fruit development.
this is why the male plants grow faster and less compact.
In formal setting, where a matching pair of hollies are needed,
both plants should be same sex so they will continue to grow
at at similar rate. We recommend that the male be within
200 yards of the female for adequate pollination.
Other factors will affect berry production.
