Rhus integrifolia 'Lemonade Berry'

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.

Growing Lemonade Berry

  • Plant Rhus integrifolia (Lemonade Berry) in a location with full sun to partial shade, ensuring it receives at least 4-6 hours of sunlight daily.
  • Water the plant regularly during its establishment period, then reduce watering frequency, allowing the soil to dry out between sessions to prevent overwatering.
  • Use well-draining soil, such as sandy or loamy soil, to prevent waterlogging and root rot, promoting healthy root development.
  • Lemonade Berry is drought-tolerant once established and thrives in USDA hardiness zones 8-11.
  • Prune the plant as needed to maintain its shape, remove dead or damaged branches, and encourage dense, healthy growth.
