Best Mahonias for the PNW, with Dr. Ross Bayton
An In-person Class
Grapes of Wrath
The Oregon grape genus Mahonia is chock full of excellent garden plants. From our native ground cover Mahonia nervosa, to the many popular Mahonia x media hybrids such as 'Charity', this group offers evergreen, elegant, deer-resistant foliage, flowers in almost every calendar month, and cascades of grape-like berries. Easy to grow, they require minimal maintenance and often thrive in dry shade - what's not to love? Join Heronswood Asst. Director Ross Bayton for a tour of our large Mahonia collection, where he'll discuss pruning, propagation and his selection of the best varieties for Pacific Northwest gardens.
