Italian Skies Ceanothus

Italian Skies Ceanothus is a fantastic selection from the UK that forms a large mounding shrub and has the most spectacular deep blue flowers for nearly two months! Grows very quickly when young in well drained soil with no summer water once established. The flower trusses on this one are one of the biggest of any Ceanothus we grow!

A very useful and beautiful genus of shrubs native to the West Coast, mostly in the California and Southern Oregon Coast Range, Ceanothus boast evergreen foliage, gorgeous purple to blue, sometimes white, flowers and can tolerate the worst soil conditions so long as they are well draining. As nitrogen fixing shrubs they also fix nitrogen in the soil and are excellent companion plants for other woody plants.
