‘Soft Caress’ Mahonia from the Southern Living Plant Collection is a truly exceptional plant that adds a unique texture to shady gardens. Chinese Mahonia was introduced years ago, and provided a solution for shaded gardens everywhere. However, the sharp foliage of the Chinese Mahonia requires gloves or a particularly careful touch, which may prove difficult while pruning. The Soft Caress removes this potentially painful aspect of the Mahonia entirely, with its’ soft feather-like foliage. The greenery resembles a fern frond type of growth pattern, and sprouts beautiful richly colored leaves that can range from light green to a dark blue-green. Early in Winter, the Soft Caress develops brilliant and fragrant yellow flowers that crown the evergreen foliage. Following the blooms are clusters of silver-blue berries that are an unexpected change of pace for this one-of-a-kind, fascinating plant. The Soft Caress Mahonia is perfect for an Asian inspired garden, as a specimen in a shade garden, or an accent in a container planter. Once established in well-drained soil, the Soft Caress is very tolerant of a wide temperature range, and requires little maintenance.
