£19.99

Recently released onto the market, and winner of "Plant of the Year" at RHS Chelsea Flower Show 2013, this is the first Mahonia of its kind to have spine-free leaves. 'Soft Caress' is a compact, evergreen shrub, so it is ideal for larger pots, where it will provide year-round interest. Alternatively, it will make a fine addition to either a sunny or partially shaded border. Yellow, cup-shaped honey scented flowers in August and September, followed by blue berries throughout the colder months which will attract birds to the garden.
