Eve Case Coffeeberry
Frangula californica 'Eve Case'
  
About Eve Case Coffeeberry (Frangula californica 'Eve Case') 25 Nurseries Carry This Plant The 'Eve Case" horticultural selection of Frangula californica is a specially bred cultivar that provides a manageable and compact shrub. It is limited to a height of three to eight feet and has a smaller width at about 5 feet wide in diameter. This shrub is a good choice of Frangula californica for pots or container hedges due to its smaller size and dense, large leaf foliage. Tolerates almost any soil type. Prefers sun or part shade in coastal sites, and part shade or shade in inland sites. Selected for the garden.
Horticultural selection F. californica: origin = seedling (1957) from R. californica 'Seaview'; introduced by Saratoga Horticultural Foundation in 1975
