'Charity' mahonia (Mahonia × media 'Charity')
mah-HOE-nee-ah ex MEE-dee-ah
Genus:  Mahonia
Few shrubs offer flowers as late as this one, which starts blooming in late October or early November. The upright, 10- to 12-inch-wide flower clusters last until January or February, then give way to long strings of dark purple fruit that the birds devour. The evergreen foliage is so architectural, 'Charity' would be a spectacular shrub even if it didn't bloom. Some years, the leaves turn red, but instead of relying on it, consider it a pleasant surprise when it happens.
Noteworthy Characteristics:  Showy flowers in fall and winter; bird-attracting fruit; evergreen, architectural foliage.
Care:  Provide partial sun to fairly deep shade and moist, well-drained soil.
Problems:  Generally trouble-free.
