What variety of Holly will produce red berries without having to get two plants? Looking for holly that does not need to have two plants (one male and one female plant) in order to produce a red berry and, if so, then who sells this holly?

I would make an inquiry at your local garden center about these holly shrubs (they can probably special order them for you) and verify with them that you do not need a male and female prior to ordering. There are also companies on-line like burpee and miller nurseries that might carry these varieties as well.
