  • Item #: 10SHCA

A rounded shrub growing 6-8' with thick leathery gray-green foliage.  Small yellow flowers are followed by yellow or red fruits.  The scaly white bark with orange dots gives a "rusty" appearance.  It is rather slow growing, tolerating poor soils and high salt content in rocky soils of open forest banks and meadows.  Has nitrogen-fixing capabilities.   The foliage is a popular food source for deer and elk, while bears and grouse prefer the berries.  Native Americans combined the berries with dried buffalo meat to make Pemmican.
