Salal is a dense bush that naturally grows in our mature forests. It prefers moist soils and is easily scorched by the sun, making the wet, shady environment of our Pacific Northwest forests an ideal home. Salal leaves and berries are a beloved snack for deer and other wildlife. Salal also attracts butterflies, hummingbirds, and—actually—brides-to-be. The rich green leaves are a favorite foliage for bouquets. Floral companies source them from our forests!
