Product Description

Oceanspray is typically found in dry woodland areas.  It may be difficult to establish but once established, it quickly becomes a large, clump-forming shrub.  Long cascades of white, foamy flowers give it its name, and long gray-green leaves with gray-white undersides show some yellow in the autumn.  Normally all stems are formed from a basal crown or from suckers.  Oceanspray’s very hard wood was traditionally used for making arrows; it was called ironwood.  At maturity it can reach to 15’ tall and 20’ wide; partial shade; moderate drought tolerance.  Oceanspray provides cover for birds and other small wildlife.
