Mahonia japonica is a popular shrub, instantly recognisable for its distinctive spiky leaves and long racemes of golden winter flowers. The blooms appear in profusion from November through to March, releasing a strong ‘lily-of-the-valley’ perfume. They are closely followed by blue-black berries. This reliable, evergreen shrub has a spreading, bushy habit that forms fabulous groundcover and makes an impenetrable security plant. Mahonia is adaptable and robust, thriving in challenging shaded positions where many other plants would struggle. Height: 1.5m (59"). Spread: 2m (78").

How to Grow
Grow Mahonia plants in any rich fertile, well drained soil in full shade. Although Mahonia plants are hardy they will appreciate a sheltered position away from cold, drying winds.Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil.
