Info

This is a great plant! Mahonia are some of the most ornamental broadleaf evergreens, but most have spiney leaves that turn off some gardeners. Soft Caress eliminates the spines and has narrow bamboo-like leaves that still maintain the fantastic architecture and texture of the species. Yellow flowers bloom in late winter to early spring. Small growing to 3-4' tall.

We usually think of Mahonias as mean and spikey. This one will change everything. Soft Caress has a million uses- containers, companions, sun or shade, poor soil, rich compost. Yellow flower spikes in early spring. PP 20183
