    I have a beautiful holly bush but I don't know if it is male or female. Once I determine this, I will buy the correct holly shrub and wait for the berries. How do I tell if my holly is male or female?

    Look at the flowers, and see if they have well-developed stamens (male), or a well-developed style (female).

    In the pic here, male above, and female below:
