Open pollinated seedlings from Mahonia 'Cabaret' which shows qualities of its parents, M. nitens and M. gracilipes. The two-toned flowers are red to orange on the outside and yellow on the inside and held in terminal upright candles from late August into October. Quite uncommon in the US - we are likely the only ones who have this.
A seedling from a cross between two fine Mahonia species done at the Bloedel Reserve and given to us by their Director of Horticulture, Andy Navage. While we would love to grow these on and evaluate the differences, this would take time, space, money and well, we could go on but would rather deputize you to grow this on and report back.
One of the great Mahonia species or Berberis as they are now known. We saw this growing on Wawushan in Sichuan where it exhibited it's characteristic waxy white underleaf. Loose sprays of pinky-orange flowers in the fall followed by nice fruit. Easy and a connoisseurs foliage plant.
