Mahonia Charity....before the atrocious weather!!


Mahonia Charity....before the atrocious weather!! (Mahonia x media (Lily of the valley bush) Charity)

After last night, I would imagine the flowers are non-existent, cannot get out to check as it is tipping it down and has been for most of the day!!

I really love the smell of the flowers, they remind me of lily of the valley perfume. I hope it survives all the rough weather.

I love all the Mahonias and wish I had room for them in my new much smaller garden !

Rose - if you search for 'Marvellous Mahonias', you will find a blog I wrote a few years ago about various members of the family. There are several smaller ones, suitable for smaller gardens

Rose Andrew is right, there are some smaller varieties..
Thanks all for your comments.

I really like the Mahonia's as they seem to grow well here on the shadey side of the garden and under the tree's. I didn't know that the flowers had a perfume will have to investigate... although the scent may have faded by now as they've been in flower for some time.
