Berberis aquifolium is a species of flowering plant in the family Berberidaceae, native to western North America. It is the state flower of Oregon. In California, it grows throughout the mountains and foothills of northern and central California, and in Southern California, it grows primarily in the Transverse Range Mountains, Sierra foothills and higher elevations of the Peninsular Range.

Planting and care

The berberis aquifolium grows best when planted in soil that has a neutral or slightly acidic pH. Even though it tolerates soil of poor quality, if the plant starts to flounder, the gardener needs to add mulch or check the soil s acidity level.

Sunlight: Part shade to full shade
Soil: well-drained soil
Water: Medium
Temperature: temperature just above 0 C.
Fertilizer: The plant should be pruned occasionally to remove suckers and to control growth; it does well with hard pruning. The spring is the best time to cut back old growth without harming the plant.

Caring for Berberis aquifolium

    This Plant is best cared for when planted in moist, well-drained soil where it can receive little direct light. This plant should not be overwatered; it is drought-resistant and thrives in many types of soil.
    The plant needs to be checked regularly for infestations by whiteflies, aphids or scale. A sticky substance called honeydew and sooty mold are signs of an infestation. These need to be treated immediately.

Typical uses of Berberis aquifolium

Special features: The flowers are followed by spherical dark dusty blue berries, which give rise to the common name "Oregon grape".

Culinary use: Fruit is edible-either raw or cooked

Ornamental use: Best in small groupings in shady areas. Shrub borders. Foundation plantings. Woodland or shade gardens.

Medicinal use: Its current herbal use is mainly in the treatment of gastritis and general digestive weakness, to stimulate the kidney and gallbladder function and to reduce catarrhal problems.
The root and root bark is alterative, blood tonic, cholagogue, diuretic, laxative and tonic.

Grown in coco-peat and hence requires less water while being relatively insect free.
