Ilex verticillata Little Goblin® Guy is a male winterberry holly cultivar that functions as a male pollinator for female Ilex verticillata cultivars when placed within 50'. Although Little Goblin® Guy was bred specifically as a pollinator partner for Little Goblin® Orange and Little Goblin® Red by Proven Winners, its long flowering window from May into July might make it a good pollinating pair for a number of other winterberry holly cultivars. Though it will not bear fruit itself, its inconspicuous white flowers plays a crucial role in getting the best from the female varieties.

Noted for its attractive summer foliage rather than fall and winter berries, Little Goblin® Guy has deciduous, glossy green ovular foliage without the harsh spines of some holly species, and begins to lose its leaves after the first fall. Little Goblin® Guy prefers medium to medium-wet soils and full sun to part-shade conditions; this cultivar is not picky about soil consistency, and will tolerate heavy, clay soils, but requires less water than other cultivars due to its compact size of three to four feet tall and wide. Little Goblin® Guy has good resistance to deer and rabbit damage, and its inconspicuous appearance allows for planting anywhere within the landscape.
