Plant of the Week 10/11/2019

October 11, 2019

 

Oregon Grape Holly
Mahonia aquifolium
Zone 5-9

 

Thick, woody stems are covered by spiked leaves to make this unique evergreen. New leaves start off red, then turn green once mature.

 

In the winter, expect scarlet colored leaves to help give your yard a festive look. In the spring, expect tiny, canary yellow flowers to cover this plant. Soon after blooming, small blueberries develop that can be used to make preserves.

 

Plant in full to partial sun and water regularly. A moderate grower that can reach 3-6 ' tall and wide. Can handle a variety of soil types. Prune runners to prevent spreading unless desired. When working on/around this plant use caution because getting poked hurts!
