The Oregon grape plant blooms in early summer and its flowers are of yellow color. During fall the dark blue Berry fruit ripens and has a bitter taste. This fruit is used in cooking but mostly to make jelly locally. It is also used as medicine by herbalists because the root has anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties.
