Add to wishlist Remove from wishlist
One of the great Mahonia species or Berberis as they are now sometimes known. We saw this growing on Wawushan in Sichuan where it exhibited it's characteristic waxy white underleaf. Loose sprays of pinky-orange flowers in late summer and early fall are followed by nice fruit. Easy and a connoisseurs foliage plant. These are very nice plants needing to get bumped up into gallons shortly and when they do, they will cost a bit more so now is the time!
