Originally New and Exclusive to us in 2012 Mahonia eurybracteata Soft Caress is the first Mahonia to have soft tactile spine-free leaves. This means that it can be planted near to paths or doorways where you may brush past with out fear of prickles.
Mahonia Soft Caress is a compact, evergreen shrub, so it is ideal for larger pots, where it will provide year-round colour and interest. It will also make a fine addition to a sunny or partially shaded garden border, looking fabulous combined with other plants and evergreens, mature plants will reach 90-120cms tall with a similar width. Large Bushy Plants Supplied in approx 3-4 Litre containers, with buds/flowers in season.
