Mahonia, or Oregon Grape, is an adaptable plant that will grow in full sunshine to full shade as long as it is not a deep, dark shade. Mahonia is a terrific understory plant and grows best where it gets bright light - such as a place you might grow hosta or ferns. Hope this clarifies things for you!
