Grape holly

Mahonia

Grape holly is a flashy star for the shade, with its red new foliage and wands of sweetly scented yellow flowers in spring. Blue-black berries follow. The spiny leaves resemble holly foliage, but the color is a duller green that deepens to dusky tones in winter. Shield grape holly from wind and sunburn in winter, and mulch it to protect roots in winter. Grape holly thrives in moist, acidic soil.
