Creeping Oregon Grape
Mahonia repens, 1 gal.
Description: Creeping Oregon grape is a diminutive evergreen shrub which grows to a height of 1 foot and spreads to roughly 3 feet. The holly-like leaves are dark green, but not glossy, and become reddish in full sun and in the fall. The lovely drooping sprays of fragrant yellow flowers mature into bright blue fruits which are enjoyed by people and wildlife. A slow grower, it is hardy and drought tolerant once established making it perfect groundcover both under large trees or in dry corners of the garden.
