Salmonberry is among the first of our native shrubs to re-awake in the spring, with its bright green leaves and beautiful dark pink flowers. Its raspberry-like fruit ranges from yellow to orange to dark red in color, and are enjoyed by wildlife and people alike.
Salmonberry often forms thickets and is found along stream banks or in moist forests at elevations below 3000 ft. Ranging from 2 – 14 ft. tall, with an average height of 6 ft., salmonberry needs moist soils and full or partial sun. Salmonberry is a good choice for soil stabilization and erosion control in riparian (streamside) areas.
