Daily Flower Candy – Mahonia x media ‘Charity’

Reading time 1 minute

As the lowest low-pressure system in 150 years approaches the UK across the Atlantic, there’s precious little chance of enjoying any natural sunshine. A shrub guaranteed to brighten up the dullest, wettest winter is Mahonia x media ‘Charity’. It’s a garden stalwart, tolerating pollution and repelling intruders with its sharply pointed leaves.  On a warm winter’s day the scent is quite lovely, but it’s the sunflower-yellow flowers that do the business. Give it some shade and space to grow and Mahonia x media ‘Charity’ will reward for many years.

  1. Hang in there! – From Sunny South Africa, where our plan for an outdoor Christmas looks as though it will come to pass for the first time in several years; but it is the thought of moving the groaning tables under a roof when a thunderstorm hits that has kept us from it, nothing nasty.
