    Could be the US one, Anne: Mahonia aquifolium.

    Well I am chuffed that it has taken so well and is now, at last, in flower :-) I must check that it is in a large enough container and when/if I should move it. It seems quite happy where it is, by Dom’s toolshed, but that will need re-painting at some stage :confused: :rose:

    a nice shrub to have at this time of the year, may be followed with black berries which the birds like – the blue tits also like the flowers

    Ah, thank you Jenny :-) I noted yesterday that it has split its pot, so I must dig it in soon. Don’t want to lose it after so long waiting as it grew from a twig!! :rose:
