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.

Watering NeedsWater regularly to maintain evenly moist soil - weekly, or more often.

Thrives in humus-rich, evenly moist, well-drained soils; tolerates sandy sites and clay. Shelter from drying winds and harsh sun in hot southern regions. Water deeply, regularly during first growing season to develop an extensive root system. Fertilize in spring. Slowly spreads; prune suckers promptly, unless naturalizing is desired.
