Mahonia subimbricata - BWJ16211

Pot Size: 1 litre
Price: £25.00
A surprise find for me when looking for an elusive lily on a remote mountain peak in Cao Bang, a province of northern Vietnam, that is proving to have many hidden botanical treasures. A dainty species that is one of the smallest leaved species I have come across. Looking like a miniature palm, with 30 cm long narrow leaves composed of 15-23 small long slender tipped leaflets in opposite pairs, with few spine tipped teeth. That produce a cluster of yellow racemes of scented flowers in the autumn for us, followed by the usual, but small bloomy fruit, that I was fortunate to collect in the wild. Best grown in shelter until hardiness is tried and tested, although should be reasonable from this provenance.
