Oregon Grape Holly
This plant provides a stunning transition of color. New growth has a bronzy-red color, turns green, then eventually turns to a purple-red during the winter. Vibrant, gorgeous yellow flowers in the spring are followed by deep blue berries in the summer. At any time of year, this plant can provide a contrast to the usual green. Caution: the points on these leaves have been known to prick. Please use caution when handling.
