Product information "Oregon Grape 'Winter Sun'"

The Oregon grape 'Winter Sun' has an unusual flowering period: the yellow flowers appear in January to March and they have a pleasant fragrance. They also provide insects early with the first source of food. When I began my apprenticeship in a distant summer, there were always a few specimens of these plants in the greenhouse. I was astonished to find the first flowers of a specimen shortly before Christmas and worried about the health of the plant, I told my teacher. Amused with my worries (or my ignorance?), he told me this: in mild locations 'Winter Sun' – nomen est omen – can blossom in November or December! Then dark blue fruits appear.
The 1.5 m high ornamental shrub is also a beautiful garden plant after the flowering. The bright green foliage takes has an autumn coloration and remains on the plant throughout the winter. This shrub loves nutrient-rich, humus soils which are sour to weakly alkaline. It prefers to be planted in partial shade or shade. 'Winter Sun' is therefore one of the rather rare flowering shrubs that thrive well in the shade!

Mahonia media 'Winter Sun' has an erect habit and is not very productive. It can be thinned out and cut when the shoots interfere, otherwise pruning measures should be omitted.
Mahonia media 'Winter Sun' is well suited for growing as a solitary plant or in containers due to its bloom and upright growth. Even in small groups, it has a good effect. It is absolutely ideal for city climates; it is hardy and tolerates root pressure without problems, a feature that is shares with many other Oregon grape varieties.
