Hard to Find Trees, Shrubs
Posted by Jenny from OH on 2001-04-09 21:10:04

I have been looking around like mad, but apparently not in the best places. I want to plant an ilex aquifoleum (English Holly) and juniperus communis (Common Juniper). Any English holly would be workable, but I would prefer the self-pollinating female, I can't remember the variation's name. I also need a source for a male and a female common juniper. Anyone who knows of mail order nurseries that have these plants, or other sources that would help me, I would appreciate your help immensely!

    The English holly and juniper can be found in the Roslyn Nursery catalog which you can contact at roslynnursery.com. They also have some good links for learning more about hollies and junipers. I have never heard of a self-pollinating holly. I believe you may need to have both male and female. Also, I'm not sure that junipers are male or female. Perhaps Roslyn's links may give you more information about each. Good luck!
    • Thanks!

    Jenny,

    These are common shrubs/trees. I understand that you have been looking, but have you tried both large nurseries and small ones? I see junipers regularly at nurseries, graden centers, Lowe's, HD.

    Any respectable nursery ought to help you find or order them. Try talking the the mgr or assistant.
