Holodiscus discolor, 1 gal.
Description: A large deciduous shrub, Fast growing 4-5 feet wide and 7 feet tall. Grows well next to oak trees. Partial shade and dry to moist soil.
Oceanspray's cascading clusters of white flowers will attract birds, mammals, and beneficial insects to the yard and may hang onto the plant’s arching branches through the winter. The showy vase-shaped shrub requires minimal soil nutrient and water input and is especially useful for both drought-prone areas and shady woodland gardens. It grows quickly and successfully in a wide range of environments.
