This is a large native shrub of So. Oregon. Deer like to munch on the leaves in the spring. Does not transplant well.

I had success transplanting ONE very small (maybe 2") seedling (from a friends property) in late winter on a very wet day. It is still growing good. Very slow growers.

Adds great texture and color to a garden area
