A member of the rose family (Rosaceae), Oemleria cerasiformis is a suckering deciduous species from western North America, where it grows in scrub, on hillsides and in forests. It is a hardy shrub sending up multiple stems to 2.5m tall, and enjoying full sun and partial shade. It has lance shaped foliage and arching pendent racemes of delicate, almond-scented, white flowers. Female plants may produce plum-like fruits which give rise to the common name Oso berry.
