Ilex verticillata 'Southern Gentleman' (Aquifoliaceae)
Male Winterberry Holly
Blooms relatively late in spring, making it the perfect match to pollinate 'Winter Red' and other late-blooming hollies. Plant 'Southern Gentleman' at the back of a bed where the 9' height is an asset. One plant can pollinate several 'Winter Reds' or any other late-flowering female Hollies. Like all Winterberries, this one is happy in moist-to-wet soils.
