One of our most popular evergreen flowering shrubs, the arching branches are clothed in bright blue flowers that emerge from reddish purple buds during April and May giving a dazzling display. The small finely toothed evergreen leaves will then make a great backdrop for the flowers of other plants later in the season. Ceanothus Concha is a good plant for bringing insects and wildlife into the garden.
This is one of the hardier varieties but all evergreen Ceanothus appreciate some shelter away from damaging cold winds, they are best grown on a warm sunny wall, at the back of a sheltered flowerbed of even as an unusual informal spring flowering hedge if your garden is sheltered. (Hedge height 120-150cm, trim after flowering).
Ceanothus are easy to grow and the young shrubs develop quite quickly once established, just choose a well drained and sheltered spot.
