Garrya fremontii's can be found growing in chaparral woodlands, canyons and slopes, foothills, and mountain forests throughout its native range from Southern Washington through Oregon and into Southern California. Glossy, dark green, evergreen leaves are the backdrop for pinkish-yellow, 2 – 5 inches long, late winter catkins. Fremontii's leaves are less wavy than either 'Evie' or 'James Roof'. This plant works wonderfully well as a screen or hedge, creating cover for birds and small animals. Winter moist, summer dry — perfect for the Northwest and West Coast. It is also tolerant of climates east of the Cascades.
