Information
Produces conical, deep blue flower heads, smothering the foliage to create a stunning, hazy effect in mid-spring. This spreading, evergreen shrub is an arresting sight, smothered in dense clusters of dark blue flowers. It makes a superb specimen plant for a south or west-facing border among spring-flowering bulbs, and when has finished flowering, provides an excellent foil for later-flowering deciduous shrubs and perennials. It needs a protected site, as the deeply veined, dark green leaves are easily scorched by cold, drying winds.

Cultivation Advice.

Ceanothus can be evergreen or deciduous shrubs or small trees, with simple leaves and small blue, pink or white flowers in profuse auxiliary or terminal clusters. Grow in well-drained soil sheltered from cold, drying winds. Each year after the plant has flowered, take out the shoots by one third and apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in autumn.
