OTHER: Gaultheria Shallon is grown for its edible fruit, ornamental beauty, its value to wildlife, & traditional medicinal uses. It is an evergreen shrub native to western North America that is often found growing in coastal areas. They make a great understory shrub, or can be used for erosion control.
Salal is able to grow in any light from full sun to full shade, but will grow larger in more shade. They are also able to tolerate soil that is dry or moist. Salal shrubs can form thickets, which provides important habitat for wildlife. The fall berries are enjoyed by song & game birds as well as other small critters.
Salal is very ornamental, & makes a wonderful specimen plant. Its large 2-4" thick glossy leaves are used commercially in floral arrangements. The fuzzy pink & white dangling bell shaped flowers bloom in clusters on fuzzy pink stems. Bees, butterflies, & HUMMINGBIRDS will visit often over the long bloom period. The berries mature from September to October, & measure 1/4 - 1/2". While the fruit is somewhat small, it is very plentiful & easy to pick. The dark blue berries are juicy & have a sweet mild flavor. They can be eaten raw, dried, or made into jams & pies.
