Dry, open to closed forests, rocky habitats at low to middle elevations. Small bright yellow flower clusters attract mason and honey bees in spring, followed by edible purple berry clusters. The holly-like leaves make an excellent barrier hedge.

Warning: This species has high transplant mortality! This species will naturally defoliate within the first month of planting (leaves turn brown and fall off). Many people mistake this behavior as dying. Please continue to care for this plant and it should sprout new leaves by late spring or early summer. Things you can do to help reduce plant mortality are: get them in the ground right away, hydrate roots prior to planting by soaking in a bucket for several hours, water them in at time of planting and keep soils moist through first spring and summer.

    Most of my oregon grapes did not survive

    Posted by Chet on 18th May 2022

    2 months after planing, 5 of 10 plants have not survived. Maybe it's the long roots or my improper handling of the bare root plants

    All plants are completely dead. Not a single survivor. They looked like they had been out of the ground too long before the sale pickup date.

    Don’t worry because they look dead.

    Posted by Merrilee Rambeau on 20th Mar 2022

    This is my second time planting Oregon Grape. I almost didn’t put them in last time because the leaves were dried out and they didn’t look like they would live. Some of them looked like a dead stick by Fall. However, by the next spring the Dead ones were sending up new shoots. After 4 years I have beautiful shrubs 3 - 4 feet, covered in blossoms now. I just planted more. They look worse than any other bare roots I have planted but I have faith.

    The plants that I received looked like they had spent 30 minutes in a toaster oven. I doubt that even one of them will survive.

    schedule early pickup

    Posted by Laurie Ross on 15th Nov 2021

    If you want these to survive, pick up early because a week-long exposed root hold is brutal. Mine were shriveled to the bone by pick-up time last year.

    Posted by Andrew on 24th Nov 2020

    These recovered from planting fine and gained some growth in the first year. Planted in rock/clay soil in partial sun in Redmond, WA.
