A fun variegated take on the California Lilac, Lemon Ice features icy blue flowers with a vibrant backdrop of variegated foliage of dark green surrounded by a lemony yellow. Drought tolerant and fairly small to 4′ tall by about as wide.
A larger growing Ceanothus gloriosus cultivar than the typically seen Pt. Reyes. Anchor Bay grows 2-3 feet tall and spreads up to 6 feet wide. A great choice for large scale ground covers. Flowers are also more prolific than on Pt. Reyes and are a very cheery light blue in mid spring. A great nitrogen fixing and drought tolerant ground covering shrub!
Blue Jeans Ceanothus is one of the easiest of any cultivar to grow. An excellent choice for the first time Ceanothus grower. We love this one for its very unique holly-like compact foliage and intensely lavender colored flowers that cover the entire shrub when its in flower.
Pt. Reyes Ceanothus is easily the most widely planted Ceanothus ground cover, and for good reason! This beautiful evergreen is as tough as they come, excels in hot dry situations, on slopes, and delights the bees when the plant gets absolutely covered in violet blue flowers each March.
