Design IdeasThis smaller version of Oregon Grape is more versatile as a shrub. Useful in smaller city gardens, where its dense evergreen foliage covers the exposed legs of taller plants. Use as a small hedge or edging material to cover the underpinnings of decks and steps. Plant near rocks or dry streambeds in wild gardens or add a clump to edge plants near water gardens for an interesting foliage variation. Ideal for unique form and texture in shaded condo or town-house patio gardens.
