If I recall correctly you need a couple of male hollies to help set berries on Golden King.  And I remember comsidering J C van Tol for this very purpose years back. 

It seems whomever classified hollies like this had a sense of humour but I think he/she was simply comfused or not so bright

Sounds like golden king...a female!   And bears the berries.

Prob the flowers were frosted.

Yes in process of doing that now........from now through the month I remove all leaves.  I do it for 2 remove all traces of poss hell black spot and to enable uncluttered view of flower buds as they emerge.  I also mulch now too

Not cold here folks 

Been busy......cut lots of plants down, potted up several dahlias, salvia patens, cacalifolia, Amistad, uliginosa, etc., split a few cannas, , divided some grasses  and potted them, planted  more wallflowers and stocks, etc.  so, what looked like a full border is now not so full but ready for hellebores and daffs to start doing their thing.

Several potted azaleas and Rhodos showing loads of buds.....spring ,is just around the corner
