Mahonia eurybracteata ssp.ganpinensis ‘Soft Caress’ is a selection of Mahonia that has spineless leaves, hence the name!
Originally released back in 2013, it immediately attracted awards and was named ‘plant of the year’ at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show. It has been a popular and sought after plant ever since.
It is an easy and unfussy plant that is happy in most positions in the garden, although it is perhaps at its best in semi-shade. Fully hardy. Plants can be pruned back to encourage a more busy habit if required. Sprays of yellow flowers are produced from late summer onwards.
