There are a number of different mahonias in Southern Comfort but the most impressive is the slightly tender (but quite hardy here) Mahonia lomariifolia. The late Christopher Lloyd wrote that it made him 'weak and babbling with admiration'. They are mostly winter flowering, moderately scented, have very distinctive foliage and are easy to grow.
