Lemonade Berry is a long-lived native evergreen shrub that is an important part of California chaparral and coastal sage scrub communities. As a food and habitat source for birds and small mammals, it is ideal for native landscape (that has plenty of space) and revegetation and restoration projects. Its handsome foliage and easy adaptability also makes it a great foundation plant for landscapes and gardens. Its leathery, irregularly toothed leaves are light green on the bottom and a darker green with pale veining on top. In spring, it blooms with numerous clusters of small pink and white flowers followed by fuzzy red berries which are edible, with a slightly bitter taste.

Can take a variety of sun exposures, but in hotter inland climates, part or even mostly shade is best. Highly drought tolerant and needs well-draining soil. Variable in eventual height and width but can be pruned liberally to maintain desired size and form, from understory shrub to tree. Useful for erosion control on slopes, as a tall hedge, and as a windbreak in firescaping. As a member of the Sumac family, its sap can be a skin irritant. Best if established during the cooler months from October through March. The establishment failure rate can high planting in spring through summer, particularly in inland areas.
