Tall Oregon Grape is a powerhouse native! The bright yellow clustered flowers that develop in early spring are called racemes, that mature into matte blue berries. The waxy shiny leaves of Tall Oregon Grape change from bright green to red in the fall which creates year-round appeal. Commonly found in dry shady areas, and can become drought resistant once established. This is a must have for a woodland or edible garden!
