Oregon Grape, Tall (Mahonia aquifolium), packet of 20 seeds
Family: Barberry (Berberidaceae)
Hardy to Zones 4 to 9
Perennial evergreen shrub. Native to the Pacific Northwest of the United States. The leaves resemble holly, and in the spring the bright yellow, compound flowers emit delightful fragrance, and soak up the dew like a sponge. Traditional usage (TWM): antibacterial, liver stimulant, water purification. Source of the yellow alkaloid berberine. Plant prefers loose, rocky and acid soils of hillsides and stream banks or the rich soil found under conifers. We are offering cold stored seeds in order to help speed the typical multi-cycle germination of this species. Sow anytime, for germination in warm soils. Allow seedlings to grow for a year or more in nursery beds or in pots, then transplant to permanent location, 4 feet apart. Grows to 6 feet.
