Mahonia

Providing multi-season interest, Mahonia are evergreen shrubs grown for their attractive dark green foliage and clusters of cheerful, bright golden-yellow flowers. Sometimes  fragrant, they attract pollinators before giving way to clusters of black or blue-purple berries which attract birds and wildlife. Mahonia are easy to grow and thrive in full sun, semi-shade or even in the shade.
