How It Works
Native to the west coast of North America and cultivated elsewhere for ornamental purposes, the Oregon grape is also known as mountain grape or holly-leaved barberry. The plant grows quickly and reaches a height of six feet, producing yellowish-green flowers and purple berries. The roots are used in herbology as a nutritional aid to the digestive and circulatory systems.
Oregon Grape is a popular herb known in traditional herbal medicine as a cholagogue, digestive stimulant and tonic. The name Oregon Grape is something of a misnomer:the grapes are not grapes at all, though you can eat them and they can be cooked down into a jam. Oregon Grape is the state flower of Oregon and at one time the plant was so popular for ornamental purposes, it was all but picked out of existence in some areas of the west coast of North America.
