|Design Ideas||This Mahonia is less suited to Western native landscapes because of its unique, exotic character. Its fall color and tall growth have made it a favorite for Asian-inspired garden themes. A fine single specimen near rocks and waterfalls. Gang them under the high canopies of conifer or broadleaf shade trees. Or, use as foundation planting on those difficult northern exposures. A good plant for shaded courtyards and around recessed entries. Can be clipped to fit gracefully into the most difficult spaces. Also makes a reliable dense hedge with seasonal offerings of flowers, berries and fall color.|
