Ilex x 'Emily Bruner' is one of the most beautiful hollies I've ever seen. This 7-gallon holly was purchased 4-6-01 from Lowe's. It only had a few branches but the yellow blossoms were stunning. We have many different holly bushes and couldn't understand why this was the only one that never developed berries until today when I read that Ilex x 'James Swan' is the male pollinator for 'Emily Bruner.'

Emily has grown quite large and is lovely as ever but I still haven't found Ilex x 'James Swan.' If anyone knows where I can purchase James, please let me know!
