Amazing, native ceanothus, a parent of many cultivars and spectacular in its own right. A large, evergreen shrub, with typically crinkled, dark green leaves, and large clusters of pale blue, sweetly fragrant flowers in spring. Can reach 12' tall or more and does well on the bright edge of woodlands. Sun to part shade in well-drained soil. Drought tolerant but appreciative of occasional deep watering in summer. Frost hardy in USDA zone 8.
