Habitat: Grows best in dry to moist soil in full to part sun.

Foliage: Alternate, oval shaped, green leaves with small lobes that have short points.

Flowers: White-cream clusters of small flowers form a plume in July through August. These tend to look like lilac flowers.

Why is it good for my garden? Oceanspray does well as a feature plant in a garden standing alone with its fountain-like clusters of flowers or at the back of a border. A host of pollinators like this plant and in the summer you can hear it buzzing with action. This shrub is also enjoyed by tree frogs.
