Despite its name this is a female self-fertile shrub. I am delighted to see flowers this year - there were none last year. The white flowers attract flying pollinators though this cluster of flowers and buds has been visited by an ant. In case the picture cannot be enlarged, the cropped shot below shows it more clearly.
