Native Plants - Ocean Spray

Holodiscus discolor is a member of the rose family. This lovely shrub is compact when in full sun, but can grow tall and leggy if in shade. I love the splashy cream flowers and the interesting leaves.

This plant is growing under the power lines, at the edge of the woods.

This plant is along the roadside, adding color to the trees that form a light windbreak.

I think I've seen the same plant this week in Hokkaido. I still can't believe the similarities to the Pacific NW. Makes me very homesick.
