Thiessen Saskatoon (Serviceberry)

Thiessen Saskatoon is a deciduous shrub that produces delicious edible fruit. It is one of the most productive saskatoon varieties. Its fruit is great in pies, preserves or eating fresh.

Thiessen Saskatoon is popular with U-Picks and home owners because of its taller tree-like shape and larger berries. But it is not the best choice for berry orchards as it is too tall for most mechanical harvesting equipment.

Creeping Oregon Grape is an excellent ground cover plant with attractive dark, green holly-like leaves.

Creeping Oregon Grape maintain their leaves over winter, which turn mauve, rose and rust-colored. Clusters of bright, yellow flowers develop into dark, blue-purple edible berries ideal for juice or wine.

The yellow stems were used by First Nations to produce dyes and a bitter tonic.
