How Do I Get My Holly to Produce Red Berries?

robinholly added on July 17, 2015 | Answered

My username must show you how much I love hollies. Well, I have one that is doing good except that it has not produced any red berries since I planted it 3 years ago. It had the berries at the nursery the day I purchased it, so I thought it would have them again. The label reads: Ilex X "Conin" PP9486. Any info you can provide to help me see he beautiful red berries and help feed our many birds would be appreciated!

To have Holly berries you need a male and female plant.
If the plant you have had berries when you purchased it, it most likely is a female plant.
You will need to plant a male plant!
