Mahonias are grown for their attractive foliage and fragrant, showy winter flowers. They provide an invaluable source of pollen and nectar for winter colonies of bumblebees and other pollinators.
Mahonia x media 'Underway' is a compact mahonia with an upright habit. Its bright yellow, fragrant flowers are produced in late autumn, earlier than other mahonias, followed by blue-black berries.
Mahonia x media 'Underway' looks particularly good at the back of borders. For best results grow in moist but well-drained soil, in partial shade.

Could you tell me how and when to prune this
How do I propagate it? Can Itake a cutting?
I've pruned mine whenever necessary but it's probably good to do this in mild weather.
The wood is a rather startling yellow inside!
The summary shows that it's possible to take cuttings in June to September. Although I've had a mahonia for years, I've never tried this but I'm planning to try this year. Despite its profusion of flowers and fruit, it doesn't seem to self-seed.
