An old-fashioned but often difficult to find component of western and southern gardens from eastern Asia, the 10' graceful stalks produce 18" leaves with multiple leaflets of a blueish green and winter flowers of a fragrant bright yellow, usually at peak around New Year's Day. It's one of the parents of many of the media hybrids. Can be used to great effect in woodlands gardens and for tropical effect. Useful if placed where winter viewing is possible. A great complement to such plants as Edgeworthia crysantha; as the Mahonia fades the Edgeworthia is just coming one. USDA zone 8; damaged in the low teens °F but recovers into uppermost USDA zone 7. Give supplemental water in dry summer climates.
