5x Mahonia aquifolium "Oregon Grape" 45-60cm Bare Root
The Oregon Grape Mahonia is a winter flowering evergreen shrub which can be grown up to 3 meters high. It can be used as a unique, informal hedging, perfect for bringing colour to your borders. Bright yellow flowers burst into life in the dead of winter and iridesce against the contrasting, sometimes dull backdrop of the January garden. These flowers give way to deep blue-black berries at the start of spring and provide much needed early food for the returning wildlife. It's wild habit creates a rough, natural looking hedge, ideal for creating an informal, wildlife friendly border. The foliage is spiky with a rich gloss which often leads them to be mistaken for Holly although these leaves will turn a deep crimson in Autumn.

"When I unravelled them, there were 6 plants. Some of the leaves are a bit dog eared in places but a small matter. I put them in the ground and although the soil is very wet they are all doing well. I will be buying my plants from Primrose again."
