Ceanothus thyrsiflorus repens

Creeping California lilac

Price: €12.90

A low-grow or ground-hugging evergreen plant which has masses of blue flowers in early summer. This is a useful and attractive shrub for dry sunny slopes, for trailing over the top of a wall or for a low-maintenance garden. We have seen it used in those small front gardens which are only a few feet wide between house and the railings, where it makes an excellent low-maintenance groundcover. The flowers are attractive to bees. It grows to a maximum height of approximately 50 cms and has a spread of 2-3 metres. It requires well-drained or even gritty soil and full sunlight. 2 litre container. Plants displayed on this website are not necessarily in stock in each of our shops.
