Ceanothus Autumnal Blue Hedging
Ceanothus Autumnal Blue
Evergreen Ceanothus are always popular and this one is really useful being an autumn flowering type, bringing valuable colour to the garden when many plants have faded.
Ceanothus Autumnal Blue is a handsome shrub with small rounded glossy green leaves, from August until October powder puff clusters of sky blue flowers erupt from the branches bringing a welcome injection of colour later in the season.
Ceanothus prefer well drained soil, this is certainly one of the hardier varieties but still appreciates a sheltered spot away from harsh north or east winds. Grow Ceanothus Autumnal Blue against a warm sunny wall, at the back of a sheltered bed or even as an unusual evergreen flowering hedge if your garden is sheltered. (Suitable for a hedge of 150cm or so, trim in spring)
Autumnal Blue is a strong and upright growing Ceanothus, once well established it needs little maintenance.
