From mass plantings in your flower beds to colorful screens along your driveway, the Oregon Grape Holly Shrub serves as a one-of-a-kind evergreen shrub that does it all.
And year-round visual interest is a guarantee. The Oregon Grape’s textural foliage emerges with bronze pops of color, transitioning to green as it ages. Purple-red tones welcome the winter months, while bright yellow blooms usher in spring. Finally, the show concludes with a bounty of deep blue-hued berries in autumn.
To ensure the best results for your Oregon Grape, choose an area with full sun to partial shade. The Grape Holly tolerates shade well and also grows easily in well-drained soil with average moisture.
Start by digging a hole that’s at least two to three times the size of your plant’s root ball. After placing your plant, backfill the soil, tamp down to ensure air pockets are eliminated and water your newly planted shrub.
Water your shrub regularly – weekly during normal weather or twice weekly in extreme heat. If you’re not sure when to water or how much to water, check the soil around your plant. If the soil is dry 2 to 3 inches down, it’s time to water.
Fertilize your shrub new growth begins in the spring or during the summer. For a neater look, prune it annually to shape.
