The following list of Ilex verticillata male pollinators is provided by the University of Connecticut
'Jim Dandy' - A slow-growing, early-flowering dwarf male clone, this cultivar is useful as a pollinator for early-flowering female clones such as 'Afterglow', 'Aurantiaca' and 'Red Sprite'. It grows to about 5' tall
'Southern Gentleman' -- This plant is a late-blooming male pollinator for 'Winter Red', 'Winter Gold', 'Capapon', 'Shaver', 'Sparkleberry' and other later blooming female clones.
'Apollo' -- This is a male clone useful as a late pollinator for 'Sparkleberry' and 'Winter Red'. The new growth is burgundy-red, and the habit is ascending-upright with a final height of 10' to 12' tall. A U.S. National Arboretum introduction.
'Raritan Chief' -- This is a male clone used to pollinate many deciduous Holly hybrids, as it flowers over a long period. It may reach 12' tall and features attractive glossy, light green foliage.

Viburnum Pollinating Tips

Although Hollies are better known for their berries, Viburnum shrubs can also have striking fruit each fall.
Two of the best fruiting Viburnums are Tea Viburnum (Viburnum setigerum) and Linden Viburnum (Viburnum dilatatum).
Just as with Hollies, good pollination produces best fruiting. The best way to ensure good fruit set is to plant another variety of the same Viburnum species nearby. 'Michael Dodge', 'Mt. Airy' and 'Asian Beauty' are all good varieties of Linden Viburnum. Viburnum plicatum, Japanese Snowball Viburnum, is a non-fruiting plant with sterile rounded flowers.
Viburnum plicatum var. tomentosum, Doublefile viburnum, has flat-topped flowers and can set fruit, if you have varieties such as 'Shasta', 'Summer Snowflake' or 'Mariesii' close by.
