What plant would I need as a pollinator for this female variety of ilex?

    Golden Queen? Two very misnamed varieties.

    Any male holly - I'd be surprised if there was not one nearby in the area, but if not Silver Queen is a male and pollinates Golden King (female) well.  I often wonder who named these and if they understood plants have make and female types?
