Oregon grape holly is one of those great native shrubs that is both evergreen and adaptable. The shiny, holly-shaped leaves turn shades of bronze and red in the cold of winter. Bright yellow flowers bloom early in the spring, attracting early local pollinators and hummingbirds. Deep purple berries appear later in the summer and attract songbirds and other small wildlife.

Mahonia aquifolia is durable and makes a perfect backdrop for lower-growing perennials and shrubs. Add Oregon grape holly to an informal native hedge, or use it to hide an unsightly fence or define a boundary line. Its foliage texture and color nicely contrasts other broadleaf evergreens and should be considered for a low-maintenance foundation planting. Deer do not give Mahonia a second glance, preferring to browse on plants with less prickly leaves. When Oregon grape holly is established, it is extremely drought tolerant and works well in water-wise planting designs. 

Oregon Grape Holly Care

Plant Oregon grape holly in a location with well-draining, acidic to neutral soil. Apply an annual mulch of organic material like compost or arborist chips to enrich the soil and retain moisture longer. Oregon grape holly struggles in locations with full sun and dry soil. Protection from the heat of the day and heavy winds is important in keeping the foliage glossy and colorful. A location in part sun to full shade in the garden is ideal.

Pruning is best done shortly after flowering in spring. Cut back any leggy growth from the previous growing season to encourage bushy and dense foliage growth. Pruning after flowering will cut back on the number of berries that are produced, so prune judiciously for shape. Heavy annual fertilizing is not needed and will encourage weak growth.

Oregon Grape Holly Spacing

Oregon grape holly will reach 5-6 feet tall and wide. Space multiple plants 6 feet apart from the center when planting in a mixed garden border. To construct a dense native hedge, space plants about 4-5 feet apart.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
