Gaultheria shallon - Shallon


Out of stock

25 seeds per pack. A relative of wintergreen, this North American native bears edible, dark blue berries that were once an important food source for native peoples of the Pacific coast. Usually a small, to medium sized shrub, some specimens have reached 15 ft. Can spread via underground rhizomes. It naturally grows along the temperate Pacific coastline, so it enjoys cool, moist climates. And while found growing as far north as Alaska, it only tolerates moderate frosts, down to 10-15 F. #3855
