Mahonia are evergreen, architectural shrubs which are grown for their handsome foliage. They have yellow, cup-shaped flowers which are beautifully fragranced and spiny-margined leaves. Leaves are grey-green in colour but can be a purple-red when young. Flowers are followed by decorative, purple-black fruits.
