    This delightful new introduction has only recently become available, so we are one of the first to offer it for sale in the UK. It has the same glossy, holly-like, evergreen foliage, that you would expect to see on a Mahonia, but this compact variety produces its flowers from the end of summer and all the way through autumn. These appear initially as elegant racemes smothered with bright orange-red buds, that open from the base of the spike to reveal cheerful yellow flowers. Once the flowers have faded, bluish-grey berries form, which contrast beautifully with the winter foliage.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.

    Will this Mahonia cope with light shade (i.e. next to a North wall so little sun but no overhead shade)?

      Hello there
      Although mahonias berries are not known as being loved by the birds, I believe that blackbirds can be very partial to them.
      Hope this helps

  • Q:

    Is this mahonia scented? Would it cope with being grown in a largish container?

      Unfortunately the flowers of this new Mahonia are not scented.
