mahonia lomariifolia 001As with most holly, Mohonia offers amazing foliage texture, however the winter interest comes from spectacular luminescent yellow floral display borne above the foliage, visible even through foggy winter mornings. The long lasting floral display gives way to vibrant blue berries which hang through the foliage.
