Common name : Seaside Alder

Scientific name : Alnusmaritima

The name ‘Maritima’ comes from Latin, meaning growing by the sea. It is a deciduous, multi-trunked, upright-rounded, fall-blooming perennial large shrub or small tree that typically grows to 20-30 feet tall. The greatest bloom is usually observed in the late summer, with fruit and seed production starting in summer and continuing until autumn. The leaves are not retained year-to-year. The seaside alder has a moderate lifespan relative to most other plant species and a moderate growth rate. At maturity, a typical seaside alder will reach up to 30 feet high. It is mainly used as a windbreak.
