In late spring and early summer, this bushy evergreen shrub is smothered in clusters of of dark blue flowers among small, dark green, glossy leaves. It looks great in the middle of a south or west-facing mixed border, or as a specimen at the edge of a terrace or path. It requires protection from cold, drying winds.
Taking Care of Ceanothus
Water thoroughly during dry weather until well established. Mulch with organic matter in spring and add a general fertilizer. Tie shoots and branches of evergreen kinds to wall supports.
