In such cases, cross-fertilisation takes place. The pollen grains land on the stigma of female flower present on another plant. The American Holly is an example of dioecious plant. In dioecious plants, all plants are either female or male. Other examples are :
Kiwi Fruit Vine, Tree of Heaven, Paper Mulberry,  Bittersweet Vine, Plum Yew, Morus etc.
 
(Monoecious plants have separate male and female flowers on the same plant. These plants are often wind pollinated. Examples of monoecious plants include corn, birch and pine trees and most fig species.)
