Holodiscus discolor/Oceanspray

Holodiscus discolor/Oceanspray

from 8.00

Oceanspray features a profusion of tiny cream-colored flowers that resemble a cresting wave. It is an ornamental shrub highly prized for the beauty of its foliage and flowers and for its ability to thrive in a variety of conditions. It can grow up to 15 tall over a long time, but is usually found under 10 feet in height. It has a fountain-like form, and it can be pruned from its base to maintain a more open appearance. In the winter, its flowers persist as clusters of tiny brown star-shaped seeds, adding interest to the winter landscape and offering food for insects and birds until the strong winds finally dissipate the last of these seeds. Oceanspray is surprisingly adaptable to a wide variety of sun and soil conditions, and can thrive equally well as an understory species below large conifers or as a full-sun specimen planting in a smaller landscape. Its tolerance to salt spray makes it an ideal choice for a large shrub near the shoreline.
