Oceanspray

Oceanspray (Holodiscus discolor) is a shrub found across southern BC and north to the central coast. It is common at sea level to mid-elevation sites especially in open areas like clearings, trails and along coastal beaches. It generally blooms in May/June depending on latitude, elevation and local conditions. Its white flower clusters stay on the plant for a long time and turn brown in late summer. It can grow to over 10 feet tall.
