Holodiscus discolor

Creambush, Ocean Spray

These hardy, adaptable shrubs of the Pacific Northwest hug the ground in poor terrain but reach tree size in moist, rich soil. Native tribes made arrows from the long, straight hardwood branches. The drooping sprays of small, creamy flowers attract birds. Coarsely toothed leaves are deep green above, hairy underneath. Virtually care-free, they are good for property edges and natural woodland settings. Prune after flowering or in early spring to remove old or overcrowded branches. Most easily propagated by layering.
