It's lovely. It reminds me of a hollyhock.

Really? I can't see how - maybe if I lie down and look at it sideways???? lol.

a beautiful Shrub i think its very underated, the display is really lovely
it cheers you up seeing them lovely yellow spikes of flowers on long
stalks with lovely green shiny leaves.

Your Mahonia is stunning!!!

I think it's the fat buds all along the stem. Why are you always wanting to lay down in the garden Spritz.?

Is this pale, rather than deep, yellow, Sprtiz? I look forward to the blooms of Mahonia just as much as snowdrops. :-))

Yes, David - it is. I'm also a bit annoyed about the other one, as it looks too similar to this - I don't think it IS 'Charity' at all! I really wanted that one - it holds its flowers upwards, doesn't it.

Homebird - I get tired and have to have a lie-down. LOL.

"Charity" always reminds me of candelabras, with, as you say, the curving, upward, flower "spikes" in yellow. This one is beautiful, however. :-))

I've been done! I haven't got 'Charity' at all! Not fair. I really wanted her. :-(((

Thats lovely is it easy to grow? I have Charity but would like something a little smaller!

11 Feb, 2010

 

Yes - it's at the back of the border facing east, so it doesn't get much sun at this time of year. It seems fine, though.

A lovely bloom Spritz.
Homebird, I'm not surprised that my "Queen of the Gardens" gets tired with the size of her beautiful garden that she tends.

LOL. (Blush!)
