Mahonia 'Winter Sun'

Mahonia are evergreen, Winter-flowering shrubs with leathery, shiny, sometimes spine-toothed (like holly leaves), pinnate leaves and spires or clusters of small and globular or bell-like flowers, sometimes fragrant, that are often followed by purple or black berries and clustered racemes of sometimes fragrant yellow flowers, sometimes followed by black or purple berries. Some varieties bloom in Autumn through Winter, and some flower in Spring. 'Winter Sun' - as the name implies - flowers through the Winter. it bears upright clusters of fragrant yellow flowers on a medium-sized shrub with long spiny leaves. The flowers are followed by blue-black berries.
