This selection of Mahonia is some what similar to the well-known 'Soft Caress'™, but the foliage has much more of a blue-tint and it appears that it will get slightly larger as well. But it has the same soft foliage of the species not the "prickly" leaves which one associates with this genus. It has attractive sprays of bright yellow flowers from its terminal buds each fall. These are followed by attractive blue berries. The winter of 2013-14 was one of our severest in decades and there was much less damage than on 'Soft Caress'™. Grow it in filtered sun or morning sun and afternoon shade.
