About the Oregon Grape
The Oregon Grape was designated as the state flower by the legislature in 1899.

It is an elegant ornamental evergreen shrub somewhat resembling English holly. In the wild state it grows to two to three feet high. Under cultivation, it makes a showy plant six to eight feet high, with finely cut, polished leaves. In spring, the Oregon Grape bears small yellow flowers that are followed in the late summer and fall by dark, purplish-black berries. It is found growing mainly in the western areas of Oregon. The berries are edible.
