Ceanothus thrysiflorus repens
A tough and forgiving little evergreen shrub which as long as it is not planted in shade and is in well-drained soil will grow in the most difficult of sites. Low spreading mound forming habit with glossy mid green leaves and panicles of gorgeous powder puff blue flowers which appear in May through June make a stunning front of border plant or even trained on a fence or over walls. Ceanothus require well drained soil and full sun for best results. An easy to care for plant requiring only a light trim to ensure it retains its shape in early spring.
