Alnus rugosa

This vigorous growing native shrub thrives in moist areas and provides great cover for native critters while serving as a larval host for some native butterflies. Deep green foliage on dark, almost warty stems with yellowish fall foliage. Easy to grow. Thrives in moist soils and tolerates growing along streams and low areas well. Perfect for massing to form a border planting or naturalized wind break.

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!
