This Mahonia looked glorious when we visited Queens Park in Invercargill, Southland on Wed 11 May. I don’t remember noticing before that yellow flowers and blue berries appear in same bunches at the same time. I think individual flower stems must fall downward after pollination and then form berries ~just judging from what appeared to be going on with this tree. Happy to be corrected if any of my readers know more about the process.. I’m just wondering!
