Mahonia eurybracteata 'Soft Caress' is a small, compact, vigorous, upright, evergreen shrub with long, narrow, soft, spine-free, glossy, dark green leaves. Lemon-yellow, honey-scented flowers on upright racemes bloom in late summer and autumn and are followed by edible, blue-black berries. Attractive to bees, birds, and butterflies. Mahonia eurybracteata grows best in fertile, humus-rich, slightly acidic, consistently moist, well-drained soils. It doesn’t like drought. It prefers partial shade to full sun. When grown I full sun, it flowers more abundantly, but is prone to sun scorch. It is resistant to frost, even some exposed positions. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. Low maintenance plant, doesn’t require pruning. Oregon grape 'Soft Caress' is a late-flowering, dense shrub with light and fluffy appearance. Attractive all year round, it is perfect for small informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Excellent for flower beds, shrub and mixed borders, and planted beneath mid-sized trees. Great as a groundcover and suitable for growing in containers.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
