Mahonia soft caress

I've got one in a pot. It was purchased 2 years ago.  Good foliage but not yet flowered.  I've got it in a shady spot so that may be why.  I'm happy with it for foliage though - looks good by my front door.

Buttercupdays, you may get yours to flower by leaving it potbound. Mine cracked its pot and I still left it in it, and then it flowered. They smell gorgeous.

Sorry I cant see your photos but I suspect too much water. Leaf shrivelling is a sign of too much or too little.  I barely water mine.

I have hostas and brunnera in the same area.  Hostas scoffed.  Brunnera untouched.

I love the changing seasons.  My favourite is the start of spring with the promise of all to come.  But I also like the autumnal feeling.  If I was going to be picky I'd cancel January, plus make July or August weather reliably sunny.

I wondered where you all were this morning,  The kids slept in too so I sat at the breakfast table alone wondering if I'd got the time wrong!

Yes, Rowan is the common name for sorbus.  But I thought they were tolerant of most situations? Any sorbus knowledge out there?
