Mahonia Charity 5 litres
An underrated shrub, that we would love to see more of in gardens. It flowers from late autumn through to late winter when nothing else is in flower. The leaves are large, glossy, and serrated similar to holly but much longer.
Charity Mahonia is a big shrub compared to smaller varieties and she carries herself very well planted at the back of a shady border here at Enchanted Gardens in the Cow Shed Garden. Mahonia is evergreen which makes it the perfect background for smaller planting that flowers at different times during the year.
Please consider bringing in some blooms – the fragrance is truly amazing and I often place some in my bedroom to cheer me up in the cold darkness of winter. (Please wear gloves) Any pollinators active at the time of flowering are given the bonus of much needed nectar.
Mahonia Charity is very tough and hardy – I have never heard of failure, also, after flowers they produce dark purple grape like berries that the birds love & need.
