Holly Blue Prince is a male holly. Male hollies are compact, evergreen and produce a dazzling display of summer flowers. Protruding out of these flowers, Blue Prince extends four pollen filled stamens. If you were a butterfly or bee, you would see these stamens waving to you, beckoning you to 'come over here'. This availability of pollen makes male hollies such an attraction for pollinators to visit your garden. They are just too alluring to resist. Due to its relative neatness, Blue Prince is ideal for a patio, container, or small garden. Hollies are evergreen, yet when we have one of those prolonged ice-cold spells in the winter, Blue Prince releases an anthocyanin to protect itself from the cold. Anthocyanin is the same chemical which makes Blueberries blue, and results in Blue Prince literally turning blue with the cold! A very intriguing plant.
