RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Year 2013
Mahonia eurybracteata ganpinensis Soft Caress to give it its full technical name is a sensational new Mahonia variety that has recently been released onto the market. It has won the RHS Chelsea Flower Show Plant of the Award in 2013 and numerous other horticultural awards throughout the gardening industry, guaranteeing a truly superb new plant introduction.
Mahonia Soft Caress is the first Mahonia of its kind with spine-free leaves, which means it can be planted near to paths or doorways with out the fear of being prickled as you might with traditional Mahonia varieties that have holly-like leaves. If you brush past these, there will be no worries about any scratches, opening up many new planting positions and ideas where you may not have considered Mahonia in the past. 'Soft Caress' is also compact and dwarf in nature, which means it makes an excellent evergreen groundcover when planted en-mass. Evergreen shrubs such as this are also ideal for larger patio planters, where they can provide interest all year round. It could of course simply be used to make an outstanding addition to either a sunny or partially shaded border. Being compact in nature, with it's unusual texture, and late season flowering period, we also think it will look fantastic at the side of a garden pool, coming in to it's own as other plants may be finishing.
