For more information on the habitat and vegetation of the area this was found and on the weather that day, please see the journal entry here on iNaturalist for April 23, 2012. This tree was found on the edge of a secluded path near the shore of Lake Washington at Magnuson Park in Seattle. The shrub was about 15 feet tall with slim branches and a slim trunk. The defining feature of this shrub is the "spray" of tiny white flowers that grows from each branch. This shrub in particular did not have its flowers as they don't bloom until early summer. The picture I have is of the "spray" from last year's bloom, which will fall off and be replaced later. The shrub is deciduous and prefers wet coastal environments like the one I found my specimen in. The shrub is also known as an ironwood because its bark is so hard and resilient and it has been used for nails in the past.
