How To Pollinate A Nellie R Stevens Holly Tree

Question From: J. Tomczyk - NEW JERSEY
Q: I purchased a Nelly R Stevens holly tree. Will a male Dwarf Chinese Holly pollinate it and what specifically should I ask for to get a male ( Ilex cornuta 'Rotunda ?)

A: You need the Edward J. Stevens make to pollinate Nellie. That said, she will produce some fruit without a pollinator. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
