Mahonia aquifolium – various sizes



Mahonia aquifolium is a species of flowering plant in the family Berberidaceae, native to western North America. It is an evergreen shrub growing to 1 m (3 ft) tall by 1.5 m (5 ft) wide, with pinnate leaves consisting of spiny leaflets, and dense clusters of yellow flowers in early spring, followed by dark bluish-black berries. The leathery leaves resemble holly and the stems and twigs have a thickened, corky appearance. Mahonia aquifolium is a popular subject in shady or woodland plantings. It is valued for its striking foliage and flowers, which often appear before those of other shrubs. It is resistant to summer drought, tolerates poor soils, and does not create excessive leaf litter. Its berries attract birds. (Wikipedia) Photo credit: Walter Siegmund – Own work, CC BY-SA 3.0.
