Agarita

Berberidaceae Berberis trifoliolata

Agarita is an evergreen shrub up to seven feet with leaves in groups of three. It has yellow blooms sometime between February and April and red fruit that is ripe in May. The leaves are very sharp and the deer leave this plant alone. It makes a good screening plant. The fruit makes good jelly, put a cloth under the bush and beat it with a stick to get the berries. Grow in sun or part shade and give it good drainage.
