This shrub is Mahonia. There are a number of varieties on sale and I would not like to try to identify it further.

Have a look on Andrewr's blog 13Dec2008, I think that should help - or, if he doesn't see this, a question to Andrewr direct?

It's Mahonia aquifolium

Mahonia Wagnari I would thing the Aquifolium leaves often turn redy purple in the winter, and mine is so at the present. If your photo has been taken recently then I would say Wagnari, if you look in the books there are a few in the wagnari group, you will tell which one by the height etc.
