Tommy’s Plant Pick of the Week – Indigo Flair Mahonia

Posted on January, 09

Indigo Flair is a newer variety of mahonia and a perfect plant for areas with shade to partial shade (preferably morning sun; afternoon shade) conditions. This compact evergreen has blue-green leaves that are a striking contrast to the bright yellow flowers that bloom in fall through winter. Its blue berries also add interest in the winter.

Tommy has Indigo Flair in his own landscape and loves the free-form bamboo like foliage. He also appreciates that this shrub requires little maintenance since it reaches only 3 to 4 feet tall and wide, and grows naturally in a rounded shape. It is an excellent choice for an accent, in containers, borders or in mass plantings. Plus it’s deer tolerant!

You can get this look for your garden right now because we’ve got 3 & 7 gallon Indigo Flair Mahonias in stock.
