Narihira Mahonia

 

Narihira Mahonia has dense, threadleaf/bamboo like, dark green foliage that create a fern-like appearance. Yellow flower spikes appear in winter and are followed by purple-blue berries early spring. Reaching a mature height and width of 3 to 4 feet this carefree evergreen tolerates dry shade in cooler climates. It grows to be slightly taller than Soft Caress and a little shorter than Marvel. All three mahonia look their best when left to grow naturally, no trimming needed.

Joseph's Take

Nirihira,  Marvel, Soft Touch Mahonia can be sensitive to cold temperatures and bright sunlight, I usually plant them near a house for added warmth and definatly in the shade to protect from extreme summer heat. Most Mahonia bloom in the dead of winter and are bright yellow. They give me hope that spring is on the way!
