Julia Phelps Ceanothus

Julia Phelps Ceanothus has been one of the more popular Ceanothus for the past 50 years and continues to be one of our favorites! It is slightly smaller than Dark Star, growing 5-7 feet high by 6-7 feet wide. It makes an excellent evergreen hedge and is a favorite of the bees. And like all Ceanothus it is a wonderful nitrogen fixer!

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.
