Buy Mahonia nitens 'Cabaret' (PBR) mahonia: A compact, autumn flowering form

  • Position: full sun to partial shade
  • Soil: moderately fertile, humus-rich, moist or well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: August to November
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    This delightful new introduction has only recently become available, so we are one of the first to offer it for sale in the UK. It has the same glossy, holly-like, evergreen foliage, that you would expect to see on a Mahonia, but this compact variety produces its flowers from the end of summer and all the way through autumn. These appear initially as elegant racemes smothered with bright orange-red buds, that open from the base of the spike to reveal cheerful yellow flowers. Once the flowers have faded, bluish-grey berries form, which contrast beautifully with the winter foliage.

  • Garden care: Apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base of the plant in spring.

Attractive plant and not too big - yet!

It's taken me years - 30 - actually, to decide how I want my small sloping, north-facing no sun in winter, baked in summer to look. With some select plants from Crocus, it's getting there.

An interesting variety - something a bit different.

It is always good to introduce different varieties. This plant was good with the colour scheme. Strong leaf form and good flower

Will this Mahonia cope with light shade (i.e. next to a North wall so little sun but no overhead shade)?

Sue

Hello, Yes, this Mahonia will thrive in partial shade.

Helen

Are this plant's berries attractive to birds?

Sandra

Hello there Although mahonias berries are not known as being loved by the birds, I believe that blackbirds can be very partial to them. Hope this helps

Is this mahonia scented? Would it cope with being grown in a largish container?

Gardenaholic

Hello, Unfortunately the flowers of this new Mahonia are not scented.
