I have been wanting one for my father for years. He bought one on a trip to California a few years ago and planned on keeping it as a container plant, but it got overwintered with our shrubs in our garden center. Needless to say, it didn't survive. Can anyone get me one? I tried some online sources last year but no one would ship me just one plant. Any leads would be greatly appreciated.
I have 2 gorgeous photos of mature Ceanothus 'Concha' but unfortunately I cannot post them here (not my photos and I cannot remember where I got them). If anyone wants to see them, email me and I'll send them to you.
Hi Darius! Lucky you! I have read they are slow growers? Wonder how long they would take to reach 5 feet? I agree, they are really gorgeous. Funny, how I never noticed them before, but now just driving around, I spot them in peoples yards...:-)
someone told me there's a variegated groundcover variety...I haven't found one yet but I'm looking.
Sue, isn't it wonderful to "discover" a new plant? I did the same thing a few years ago, I was driving along and saw one in full bloom and had to drive around the block for another look, I wondered why I'd never noticed them all these years, but now I see them everywhere, I know of one that's about 15 feet tall and 20 feet wide, it's majestic in the spring when it's a solid mass of deep blue.
Carena, that sounds gorgeous! 15 x 20,wow! I just phoned a local grower and they have several varieties in now, I will take a look this week. I will also check and see if they have the variegated groundcover. If they have one, I'll e-mail you!
