Plant of the week 4.18 – 4.22 ~ California Lilac / Ceanothus

Ceanothus 4.11 - 4.15Plant of the week 4.18 – 4.22 ~ California Lilac / Ceanothus  ~ Ceanothus is an  evergreen shrub with low water requirements and thrives in full sun to partial shade. Ceanothus has an abundance of small blue / purple flowers – or in some cases, white –  in the spring, and will flower sporadically throughout the year in California.  This genus has species which grow as a low ground cover to about 8” tall and spreading 6’-12’, a mounding shrub growing 3’-12’ tall and 6’ wide, and even tree forms which can be trained as a standard small 15’-20’ tree. Naturally prune this plant (only); do not sheer as it will encourage die-back in large areas and the interior will become woody and bare.  This plant will have a relatively short life under irrigated culture, but can last many years in the wild.

Check out this beautiful pergola and outdoor space at one of the estates we maintain in the Bay Area. Wishing we could spend the rest of 2020 lounging in the shade here...
