Mahonia aquifolium

A few years ago I saw Mahonia aquifolium (Oregon Grape Holly) blooming in the
Ozark Mountains in Arkansas, and I was hooked.  It took a while to locate a
source, but I finally found a native plant nursery in Oregon and ordered some
plants.  Both of them are finally blooming this spring.  Their older foliage
remains that dark maroon color from the winter which is a great contrast with
the bright yellow blooms.  The plants are still small, but I'm so excited
about them.  The first year they were in my yard the deer bit off their tips
and promptly spit them out.  I don't think they've been bothered again.  It's
small treats like this that make gardening a wonderful thing for me.
