Description

Mahonia x media ‘Charity’ is a popular variety of this architectural evergreen. From November through to March it produces long spikes of lightly scented yellow flowers which are much appreciated during a season where few other plants are in flower. The foliage is very dramatic, large, dark green and similar in appearance to holly. Mahonia x media ‘Charity’ is a valuable plant for pollinating insects, providing a source of nectar insects during winter. The flowers are followed by ornamental purple/blue berries that attract birds to your garden. ‘Charity’ is a lovely variety of Mahonia, creating a focal point in a shady border or woodland garden but will tolerate sun if the soil is kept moist. A plant that truly provides all year round interest.

How you will receive your plants: 

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a pot, ready to plant out. 

Can’t plant straight away? 

Place the pot in a sheltered spot outdoors and water regularly to keep the soil moist. 

Planting in the ground: 

Dig a hole slightly wider than the rootball of the plant. Place the plant in the hole so that it sits at the same level in the ground as it did in the pot. When backfilling, mix in a soil improver such as well-rotted farmyard manure. Firm the soil around the plant and water well. 

Planting in containers: 

Choose a pot with good drainage holes. Place stones or crocks (bits of broken pottery) at the bottom of the pot to stop the drainage holes clogging up. Use a good quality compost. Feed and water container-grown plants regularly. 

On established plants remove some of the old stems and cut back if necessary to rejuvenate leggy mahonias. The cut stems are bright yellow, which can sometimes come as a shock when you first cut into them!
