The Mahonia x media cultivars a hopelessly mixed up in my mind (and possibly in cultivation) so anything I say about any of them has to be taken with a pinch of salt, but this is one I am fairly confident of. It grew for about 20 years outside my front door, has colder yellow flowers than any of the others, sometimes with a distinct green tinge, and flowers at the end of December and into January. (If my original plant was correctly named - if I could remember where I got it from you could judge the reliability of the source for yourself).
It has now been lifted and moved up into the main garden (with a big label on it so I don't get them mixed up again).
