Description
This low, mound forming Californian Lilac forms a spreading pillow of glossy, evergreen foliage at maturity. Ceanothus griseus var. horizontalis 'Yankee Point' produces a fine display of deep blue flowers in early summer that will attract butterflies and pollinating insects to the garden. This hardy shrub makes superb ground cover for a sunny border, coping particularly well with coastal conditions and dry conditions. Height: 1m (3'). Spread: 2.5m (8').


1 x 10 litre potted ceanothus plant on a trellis (KB9221)

How to Grow
Plant Californian Lilac into any fertile, well-drained soil. Choose a position in full sun with shelter from cold, drying winds. Ceanothus may be grown as a free standing specimen or trained against a wall or fence.
More Info
During spring each year, trim back the previous year’s flowered stems to within 2 or 3 buds of the woody framework.
