Mahonia confusa – Mountain grape


  • Small shrub with very ornamental, evergreen foliage: the composite leaves are made of just 1-2cm narrow, long leaflets, giving the plant an elegant, almost fern-like appearance. Originates from China, where it grows in moist ravines and valleys.

  • One of a few plants to flower in Autumn, the yellow flower panicles are 10-20cm long, followed by blue fruits, covering the top of the branches by mid-Spring. The fruit is edible raw or cooked, added to porridge's, etc, with a fresh and relatively sweet taste at a time of year when very little other fruit can be picked from a UK garden.

  • It prefers somewhat shady conditions and fertile, moist soils, in which it can grow up to 2m with a meter in width. Its beautifully shaped foliage, dancing in the wind is a nice sight. It flowers from a young age of 2-3.
    Excellent quality, 5-7cm tall plant in an 7cm square pot.
