Mahonia x media 'Winter Sun'
Oregon Grape - 3 litres
Mahonia x media 'Winter Sun' is a superb variety of this popular winter-flowering evergreen, producing dramatic clusters of erect spikes of bright yellow, lightly scented flowers, from late autumn to mid-winter, followed by blue-black berries. An architectural garden shrub, with bold, handsome deep green foliage, especially valuable for shady areas.
Height and spread to 3-4m by 2m (10-12ft x 6ft) in 10 years. Thrives in moist but well-drained soil, happiest in some shade, though tolerant of sun, sheltered from cold winds.
