Fruit occurs only on female plants and requires a male plant for pollination. Ilex v. 'Jim Dandy' is a compact male pollinator for all northern types. Blooms for an extended period in early - mid season. New foliage is a glossy red bronze that then turns dark green with a leathery look in summer. One male plant can pollinate many female plants.
