  • Flowering Period: November to March, producing slender spikes of pale yellow flowers. The blooms have a sweet scent reminiscent of lily of the valley.
  • Foliage: The plant has large, holly-like, dark green leaves arranged in rosettes. These glossy, architectural leaves remain on the shrub throughout the year, providing visual interest even in winter.
  • Berries: After flowering, the plant develops ornamental, round, deep purple berries. These berries not only add to the plant’s attractiveness but also serve as a food source for birds.
  • Habitat: It is an upright, evergreen shrub that can make a lovely focal point in a shady garden spot.
  • Growing Conditions: While it prefers shade, Mahonia x media ‘Charity’ can tolerate some sun as long as the soil remains consistently moist. It is recommended to give the plant ample space, as its leaves tend to spread.
  • Companion Plants: Conceal its lower stems with spring-flowering bulbs and small, shade-loving perennials to enhance the overall appearance of the garden.
  • Wildlife Attraction: The flowers provide a valuable source of nectar for pollinating insects in winter, and the berries attract birds.
