Mahonia

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'–10' high x 4'–5' wide; hardy to zone 7.

Dainty blooms and unfurling leaves forge an early spring treasure trove of color and texture.

In the last ten days, we’ve experienced all kinds of weather at Digging Dog, including frosty mornings, torrential downpours, deafening hail, glorious sunny 70 º afternoons and even sleet! Thankfully spring is almost here and signs of its arrival grow more evident every day. Brimming with possibility, youthful growth and pristine delicacy, the early spring garden is a fresh treasure trove of color and texture. The plants featured in this newsletter caught my eye while walking through the nursery and along the surrounding borders. Hopefully, a handful of them will spark your interest as well! All of us here at the nursery wish you a very happy spring and countless happy afternoons digging in a garden!
