The Mahonia is an evergreen flowering shrub which we have added because it can give wonderful Autumn colour. Indeed it is not unusual for them to continue flowering until March with Yellow flowers appearing on spiky stems above green holly like leaves. .
The Mahonia is a shrub that thrives best in dappled or full shade. Once planted they require very little maintenance and remain very healthy and disease free in most soil conditions.
After flowering this hardy shrub produces purple berries in clusters, which compliment its glossy leaves
When planting Mahonia as with any shrub you should soak the root ball or submerge it's pot in a bucket before you plant it and mix in a handful of fish blood and bone to your compost. Pruning should only be done after flowering has finished, but it is not generally required, except when it is necessary to remove dead stems. They are quite slow growing, but this particular variety Mahonia x media Winter Sun will eventually grow to approx 4m
