Through the dark days of winter, one shrub which stands out with it`s bright yellow flowers to enliven the gloom are the Mahonia`s. The different specious of Mahonia will flower from the autumn months through to early spring.

They have evergreen spiky leaves (Helps repeal intruders) and long yellow racemes(spikes) of very often fragrant flowers. Ideal for bee`s who are tempted out on a mild winters day, looking for a top up of the energy levels.

They are easy to grow and do well in most situations where they can be planted as a specimen shrub or used within boundary  planting to help deter intruders.
