Mahonia bealei

Leatherleaf mahonia began to flower in late February. it has weathered the cold without a problem, but now is just past its peak. If temperatures warm up bees will pollinate flowers so that blooms are followed by grape like fruits. Be warned that birds will spread seeds, with seedlings that are not prolific, but often must be weeded out.
