Bush with whitish fluffy flowers ID, please
It's not Ceanothus. Is this in a wet area of the garden or dry?
The small shiny leaves suggest a Hebe, perhaps Hebe diosmifolia? Is this an evergreen shrub? When does it bloom?
Rlalique, not a ceaothus I don't think - maybe wrong colour.
Growin, it's on a steep, dry bank no where near water in a country area in Waihi.
a5footsea, maybe an evergreen - photo shot late October.
vestia - thank you.
It still resembles a ceanothus to me. Growin, what is it that makes you sure its not a Ceanothus?
Even the foliage is highly resembles the regular deep blue Ceanothus. I don't know what esle could it be other than C. diversifolium "snow flurry".
I agree with growin - I don't think this is Ceanothus.
Photo 1 is my photo - note the curled leaves and yellow 'stameny-looking' things shooting out from the flowers.
Photo 2 is by cypres from the internet images for Ceanothus thysiflorus 'Snow flurry' - the leaves look different and the flowers don't seem to have the yellow stamens as in photo 1 - Yes?
I just can't put my finger on why I don't think it's a Ceanothus. I did a good couple of flats of cuttings last summer and I guess you kinda get to know the plant when you do that. I looked at all of the images I could find of white Ceanothus and I noticed the centre of the bloom looks different. Something about the veination of the leaves - not sure what it is. Some other suggestions: Leiophyllum buxifolium, Phebalium
growin, thank you for top tip.
Yes, Phebalium - Leionema coxii
