Product Overview

Holodiscus discolor

Bundle of 10

Great on dry, sunny open sites and forest edges. Arching, multi-stemmed branches. White to cream lilac-like flower clusters. Very hardy and drought tolerant.

Oceanspray is an under-utilized plant in northwest gardens. It does exceedingly well on dry slopes and at the edge of deciduous forests of alder and cascara. It can also stand alone as a feature plant in a garden (best as a big, fountain like cluster), or at the back of a border. More tolerant of sun than many other natives, it can even survive on the edges of freeways without any extra watering. It does grow slower in full shade, but still survives well. The large, white to cream, lilac-like flower plumes are dazzling in late spring to early summer gardens. The flowers then turn a tan to brown color and last on the plant through winter.

    Ocean Spray

    Posted by Susan on 21st Mar 2022

    So happy about the number of roots on these bareroot plants. Had to get rid of moldy leaves amongst plants. I think they will be fine though because of the massive root system! So thankful to add more to my yard and gave some to neighbors.

    Establishes easily in poor soil

    I had 100% success with oceanspray on a dry, partially-shaded slope that used to be overrun with Himalayan blackberry. The plants look healthy after the first year and growing quickly. They seem to prefer hostile conditions. Even the one that I accidentally dropped on the ground and didn’t plant managed to root itself.
