The fall colors are in full swing and the ground cover matches the trees. This is a small,5"x7" oil painting of Oregon Grape which actually has green leaves similar to Holly in appearance and some of the leaves will stay green all winter, but also displays golds, oranges and rust colors. A truely magnificent ground cover in the pine forests and along riparian areas. The berries are used for jelly but is difficult to find enough to make picking a very worthwhile endeavor.
