Description

Soft Caress Mahonia, or Mahonia eurybracteata, 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’ Mahonia 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.

Reaching 3′ H x 3.5′ W, this dwarf evergreen won’t go wild and take over your landscape, and its naturally compact nature will leave pruning completely optional. Try it in a mass planting in a shaded spot you don’t want to worry about maintaining.  The Soft Caress Mahonia is perfect for an Asian inspired garden, as a short border in a shade garden, or as an accent in a container planter, you won’t go wrong with this mahonia.

Soft Caress Mahonia Care

Once established in well-drained soil, the Soft Caress is very tolerant of a wide temperature range, and requires little maintenance. This mahonia is hardy from zones 7-9, down to 0°F, and has only medium water requirements. One of the most attractive aspects of the Soft Caress is its ability to thrive in both part sun and full shade, an unusual feat for most flowering shrubs.

    From Olympia, WA

    Beautiful Mahonia/Oregon Grape that is fun to touch and looks like it is from the tropics. Plant had a little bit of a rough trip from AL to WA as it was December, but seems to be settling in well and looks ready to bloom.
