Using Mahonia Winter Sun in the Landscape
Mahonia Winter Sun or Oregon Grape Holly as it's called by some is a statuesque, evergreen shrub that becomes a dramatic focal point for the winter garden. Its large, frond-like leaves develop in whorls along its coarsely branched stems. Large sprays of fragrant, yellow flowers formed in dense, upstanding inflorescences that appear in late fall or early winter. Flowers develop into grape-like clusters of wax-coated black berries by late summer and autumn. Beautiful foliage and upright growth habit make this mahonia a strong focal point in any garden.

How to Care for Mahonia Winter Sun
We suggest when planting your newly purchased Mahonia Winter Sun plants that you dig a hole twice as wide as the root system but not deeper. Depending on the quality of your existing soil you may need to add a locally sourced compost or topsoil to the back-fill soil. We do not recommend using straight topsoil or compost as a back-fill soil for Mahonia Winter Sun because more times than not these products will retain entirely to much moisture and will cause the root system to rot. Adding compost or topsoil will help the young feeder roots of Mahonia Winter Sun to spread through the loose, nutrient rich soil, much easier than if you used solely the existing soil which more times than not will be hard and compacted. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a hole any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. A good rule is that you should still be able to see the soil the plant was grown in after back-filling the hole. Bio-tone starter fertilizer is a great starter fertilizer that provides plants with mycorrhizae fungus. It is a naturally occurring beneficial fungus that colonizes on the new growing roots of plants. It creates a barrier between the roots of the plant and fungus and pathogens that can cause root rot. We love this product and use it on all plants we install in our own gardens. Bio-tone is a gardeners best friend and can help guarantee your success.
