Mahonia gracilipes

A 1980 British introduction by noted plantsman Roy Lancaster, this rare, widely praised Chinese native features dapper dark green leaves, flashing bright white undersides and dainty reddish pink cupped flowers with creamy yellow centers. Poised in airy splendor on lax slender racemes, the eye-catching blooms precede a plentiful display of large, bloomy blue-black fruit.

Mahonia gracilipes is a stellar and sturdy, slow growing evergreen, which favors partial shade in moist welldrained, humus-rich soil.

Blooms August – November.

Size: 4' 0"–5' 0" high x 4' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Mahonia x media ‘Charity’  full sun  partial shade

Guaranteed to chase away those wintertime doldrums, ‘Charity’ spotlights an ebullient fountain of small, bell-shaped canary yellow flowers. The grandiose leaves—pinnate, spiny and matt green—grow in magnificent whorls along coarsely branched stems while arching, sweet scented racemes burst forth above. Waxy, late summer berries held in grapelike bluish purple clusters are relished by birds and spark our interest for another season.

Stellar as a statuesque specimen all year long, this upstanding evergreen develops an imposing vase figure that tolerates heavy clay, flourishes with a little shade on a loamy, well drained somewhat acidic site, and can be pruned back after flowering.

Blooms late November–February.

Size: 7' 0"–10' 0" high x 4' 0"–5' 0" wide; hardy to zone 7.

Ornamental Grasses: Autumnal Garden Stars, Plant for Outstanding October Oomph!

Celebrated headliners of the late show!

Offering superb versatility, ornamental grasses become poetry in motion on gusty days. They are best situated so their fluid shimmering inflorescences, bathed in amber, sable or smoky rose and purple shades, are backlit and set aglow by the afternoon sunlight. Most look fantastic in fresh or dried arrangements, while others produce welcome seed heads that birds adore. Be sure to browse our online selections of ornamental grasses.
