Mahonia x media `Charity`


It is hard to imagine a shrub with more to offer the garden. Mahonia x media 'Charity' is a selected cultivar of the hybrid between Mahonia japonica and Mahonia lomariifolia, arguably combining the best attributes of both. It is an architectural, evergreen shrub with glossy, leathery, bipinnate leaves held in ruffs at the branch tips. Throughout winter it produces long sprays of yellow 'lily of the valley' type flowers that are slightly fragrant. It will grow in any position in any soil: the perfect background for herbaceous perennials which will reveal the winter presence of this shrub once died down.
