Male, evergreen shrub with dense, lustrous, leathery, dark green leaves that produces tiny, white flowers in spring and an abundant amount of pollen to pollinate female Ilex meserveae 'Blue Princess'. Broadly pyramidal, tightly foliage, shrubby habit. Easily pruned into any shape. Plant in full or part sun in somewhat moist, well drained soil. One male will usually pollinate 6-8 females within a 75 ft. radius.

  • Very hardy variety that is commonly used as a pollinator for Ilex 'Blue Princess
  • Best hybrid pollinator of all blue hollies
  • Deer resistant
  • Makes a handsome specimen
  • 2 gal. ships in pot unless state or federal regulations require otherwise
  • We're sorry, but due to state regulations, this plant cannot be shipped to Arizona
  • This plant ships as a bare root plant with no soil and no pot when shipped to California, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington
  • When shipped as a bare root plant, the Shake&Shipsystem will be used to remove soil from the roots, thus increasing the root tip surface area, which in turn, greatly enhances the ability of the plant to rapidly establish itself in the new environment
  • Performs best in plant growing zones 4 to 8, when grown in other Zones, special care requirements will be required
  • To accommodate mature size or when planting in groups, space 8 ft. away from other plants or structures
  • May ship in a dormant state, with bare branches and no leaves, especially in early spring when plant has been pruned back to promote lateral branching

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Arrived good went downhill fast We have two blue princess shrubs and needed a blue prince in order to have the holly berries on the princess shrubs. I ordered a prince here and later found out that I paid 8X too much. I figured that I could look past this if the shrub did well. It was planted according to instructions and was watered frequently as it has been dry. The shrub never took and died in less than two weeks. I have since purchased another from a competeter for 9.99 (Verses 50 with shipping) and will see what happens. I would have bought it from the local store but there is no store with in 30 miles from here. I was real dissapointed with the results and will not mail order live items from here again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Blue Prince and Princess Holly The plants were beautifully packed and arrived in great shape. I appreciate the work of the people who packed them for shipment. August 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Healthy holly bushes. The 2 bushes arrived quickly and are healthy and growing in my front yard. I needed the male bushes to pollinate the female bushes I already have. I had difficulty finding male bushes so I ordered from Home Depot and am happy that I did. The bushes have flowers on them so I hope I will have red berries this winter although I think it may take a season for all of the bushes to become established. June 3, 2014
