The Blue Prince
Tiny, whitish flowers appear in spring (a sign of its pollinating power), and they're gone by harvest time in September. An interesting fact about Ilex M hybrids is that they are dioecious shrubs. This means that they have their male and female reproductive organs (stamen and pistil) on separate plants. Blue Prince is the male plant, and Blue Princess is the female. Those who want their Blue Princess shrubs pollinated have to have a Blue Prince nearby.
