This is quite a rarity for us to be able to share Mahonia gracilis, from a Yucca Do collection in Northern Mexico. Our oldest specimen has been in the ground for 20+ years, and has formed an architecturally fascinating (a code word for not neat and tidy) specimen. The branches are clothed with glossy green, non-spiny foliage, and further laden, staring for us around early February, with short spikes of bright yellow flowers, worthy of votes for the most overwhelmingly sweet perfume in existence. We've never noticed any winter damage, despite 7 degrees F. Full to part sun is fine. A mature specimen will reach 7' tall x 7' wide. It is very difficult to propagate, both by cuttings and seed, so this is a rare opportunity to obtain one.
