A handsome species from China and Taiwan, although plants are now only found in cultivation, Mahonia is one of the most popular winter-flowering evergreen shrubs. In winter, the glow of rich reddish-purple leaves, which reach up to 45cm long provide a bold and colour to the garden. Towards spring, long terminal clusters of lemon-yellow fragrant blooms appear. While the plant withstands shade, it needs some protection from frost and wind to avoid leaf and bud scorch. Flowers last well in water when cut. Mahonia x media ‘Underway’ is one of the more compact cultivars of the mahonias.
