Combining two shades of the same color is often most effective. The lovely evergreen Mahonia japonica is handsome enough in foliage to warrant inclusion on that score alone. Dark, lustrous green leaves carried on a bush 4 or 5ft (1.2-1.5m) high form a proper backcloth to the racemes of pale primrose-yellow flowers open anytime from January.
An under planting of Eranthis hyemalis will spread like a deeper yellow shadow under the mahonia, growing denser with each year that passes as it self-seeds to match the spreading bush. Carry interest on into summer with glaucous yellow- and green-leaved’. A whiff of the delicate fragrance from the flowers turns February into June, if only briefly.
