Mahonia 'Lionel Fortesue'

Mahonia 'Lionel Fortesue' (Mahonia japonica (Mahonia))

i just recently moved this from the back of the woodland bed to a much more visual spot - infront of the new trellis, which means it is the first thing you see when looking through the kitchen window, - really glad i did, certainly gives much needed colour this time of year

I will have to remember to take a picture of my own. It blooms in January.

Today, I need to get trucking. 20F forcast for the weekend. That is for Seattle. Here in Sequim we are usually five degrees colder. That gets to be a problem. I will be out unpacking my huge pile of leaves.

I hope we get snow.

No blogs? Or should I not ask.
I see Pink floyd has visited. This Canadian is an interesting charactor, although our musical tastes are miles apart. I love the doleful like Leonard Cohen and Kate Lang.
I would love to hear Leonard Cohen sink (good typo). the Canadian anthem.

yes it is rather interesting PF, and i'm not sure if its a new one Skyline, would love to see the pic's of yours, in flower, but i think this one grows tall and narrow and only flowers on the top unless you chop it, it only went in last year, so it's at a good hieght at the moment but i will chop it in the next couple of years to encourage side shoots and more flowers, and lol yes prob best you don't ask, don't worry will be replacing them soon though.
