Plant of the week

Ma­ho­nia ‘Char­ity’: Any plant ca­pa­ble of flow­er­ing in an English winter de­serves a place in the gar­den. Which is why the ever­green Ma­ho­nia ‘Char­ity’ de­serves a men­tion. It’s a very at­trac­tive, large shrub which lights up the dark months by pro­duc­ing long-stalked, bright yel­low flow­ers. Given a de­cent, well-drained soil and a mod­icum of sun, ‘Char­ity’ can reach 13ft in height, al­though many gar­den­ers prune it to keep it within bounds. It’s hardy but ap­pre­ci­ates a mulch to help it get through a tough winter.
