Shade-Loving Evergreen with Winter Flowers

Soft Caress Mahonia is a fall-flowering, evergreen shrub. Plant one for a lovely accent in your Asian garden or in a shady spot for some subtle color and definition. It's small enough for a container on your front porch, yet large enough for a decorative border.

There are plenty of evergreens to keep your landscape looking warm and vibrant through the long winter months, but most of those require full sun. Your Soft Caress Mahonia, Mahonia eurybracteata 'Soft Caress', provides winter interest, but does so in those shady spots of your yard that can be difficult to find plants for.

Unlike other Mahonia varieties (with their sharp-edged foliage), your Soft Caress Mahonia seems to invite you to "caress" its soft, feathery foliage of fine-textured leaves. The long, deep-green leaves are almost fern-like and reminiscent of bamboo. The graceful foliage is reason enough to value this beautiful shrub, but it offers even more decorative interest for the autumn and winter months.

In late fall/early winter, long racemes of delicate flowers will emerge from your Soft Caress Mahonia, like candles of lemon yellow, shining their brilliance for 2-3 weeks of bloom. As the flowers fade, diminutive berries will appear, their deep blue/black hue lending further decoration through the winter months.

Soft Caress Mahonia is a dwarf variety with a compact habit. Soft Caress is a tough little shrub overall, and is even pest and disease resistant.

Gardeners revere Mahonia plants for their remarkable features, but bemoan their harsh foliage. An award-winning variety, Soft Caress Mahonia allows you to enjoy the good features without the bad. Imagine one of these gracing your yard this year!
