This listing is for one (1) Male Plant Only. Note only female plants have berries and must have a male plant nearby for pollination
Ilex x meserveae 'Mesdob' and 'Mesog' or China Boy and China Girl Holly make for an excellent pair that is perfect for adding year round foliage interest as well as bringing holiday cheer with their bright red berries. To achieve the characteristic red holly berries, these two must be grown together. With an identical growth habit, China Boy and China Girl Hollies can be used to craft hardy hedges that are easy to maintain. This Holly will tolerate blunt shearing and maintain a luscious appearance.
China Boy and China Girl Hollies exhibit a densely self branching habit. Their slightly upturned, leathery leaves are evergreen and add textural interest year round. Much like other hollies, this variety has roughly serrated leaves that display beautifully in holiday floral arrangements. It prepares to put on berries in early Fall with inconspicuous white flowers close to the stem and through cross pollination between the pair, red berries begin to emerge just in time for the holiday season.
