Note: For our customers who live and garden North of USDA Cold Hardiness Zone 6a, where this Mahonia variety is not reliably winter hardy outdoors, you'll be happy to know it can be grown in containers that can be brought indoors during winter and place back outside when temperatures warm up in spring.



Special Attributes

If you're looking to add unique texture and winter color in your shade garden, Leatherleaf Mahonia is a "must have" plant! Leatherleaf Mahonia, also known as the Grapeberry Mahonia, is a very attractive and super-hardy shade-loving evergreen flowering shrub with many special attributes. In late winter, it produces dense clusters of fragrant yellow flowers on upright racemes at the top of branches. The showy blossoms are nestled atop the foliage in late winter and early spring, when we need color in the garden the most. The flowers are followed by bluish-purple berries resembling clusters of grapes and are relished by many different birds.  The foliage is horizontally layered on vertical stems, with a habit and form somewhat like bamboo. The large, dark green and leathery leaves contrast nicely with most any other plant in the garden. Like holly leaves, the leaves of this plant do have points, but the plant rarely if ever needs pruning so you never have to touch it.




Landscape & Garden Uses

Growing 5 to 6 feet tall and 4 to 5 feet wide, Leatherleaf Mahonia is ideal for use as an accent, in groupings or as a natural hedge in larger landscape borders and home foundation plantings. A fine addition to shade and woodland gardens, tropical look gardens and cottage gardens. Consider Creeping Jenny or Vinca minor (Evergreen Periwinkle) as an underplanting. 

Suggested Spacing:  3-4 feet apart for solid hedges; 8 feet or more apart for space between plants




Cultural Preferences

Leatherleaf  Mahonia is very easy to grow in most any average, moist but well-drained soil and shade to part shade. Morning sun with afternoon shade is okay, but avoid direct afternoon sun. Very easy to maintain requiring little or no pruning and is very drought tolerant when established.
