Gaultheria shallon

Salal is an important berry in Pacific NW coastal Indians diets. The berries, the size of blueberries and blue-black in color, were traditionally eaten dried, in cakes, and and are also great fresh from the bush. Fully ripe salal berries from robust, healthy bushes are flavorful and juicy.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

  • Would these growin in New Mexico zone 7? We have big extremes from summer to winter. some triple digits down to single digits on occasion. Our soils tend to be alkaline BTW. I'd have to suppliment I'd assume. Thinking of planting under a tree. Thanks.

    Yes, you would need to push the soil towards an acid pH and keep them in the shade with plenty of mulch and water.

Beautiful Salal

I bought these 2 years ago and they have been doing great. A contractor even accidentally ran one over and its springing right back.

Also complete theory on my part but last years veggie garden did great and i have noticed a up tick in pollinators may be coincidental, then again there more flowers so it may be drawing in more pollinators.
