Late May blooms

Along Sussman Way, close to the workbox, is a healthy stand of Pacific Ninebark, Physocarpus capitatus. The shredding bark is notable, but the dense, round, pompom flower clusters are what will catch your eye. In late May the small white flowers are starting to open, and soon the whole pompom will be bursting. This shrub has excellent soil-binding qualities, and may do well in our wetter areas on the ridge. Given Ninebark is easy to salvage, volunteers will be working to restore and plant them.
