Evergreen hollies come in a huge variety of sizes, shapes and color of berries.
Among American hollies, find a lustrous-leaved cultivar such as 'Amy' or 'Jersey Knight' or the heavy-fruiting 'Old Heavy Berry' or 'Croonenburg.' Only the female has berries; you'll need a male nearby.
You don't have to settle for red berries and green leaves: 'Goldie' and 'Canary' have yellow fruit, and 'Stewart's Silver Crown' has variegated foliage.
