We inherited a beautiful large holly bush when we bought our house. I would like to know if it is a male or female bush.
It does not have any red berries in the winter which is the only visual cue I personally would know to identify if the bush were male or female. From my walks around the neighborhood I have not observed a single other holly bush- nothing within the range specified to provide pollination to this bush. Thus, I assume that it could be a female, but not receiving necessary pollination to make the berries.
I would like to buy another holly at some point and I would like the buy the opposite gender so that one of the bushes could sport the lovely berries.
Today I browsed the plants at our local Menards and observed that their Blue Prince holly bushes looked identical to my bush in every aspect other than size.
