Wonderful deep blue flowers in spring. Grows on a dry clay bank. Needed little water to establish.

Fast growing and stunning in bloom. So far has thrived everywhere I have planted it--does not seem fussy about soil. Does not need summer water. Attractive to bees. Give it room to grow if you dont want to be constantly pruning.

Great low care shrub. I like the abundance of blue flowers. Prune after flowering to maintain a compact shape. Very drought tolerant. pokerboy.

I love my neighbor's Ceanothus bush so much that I've planted one of my own. We're in Seattle, and this bush does very well. As another gardener noted, bees just love it--but they're so engrossed in exploring the bush that they never bother people nearby.
My only concern is that I want to keep mine pruned to a nice round shape, rather than letting it grow into a tree, as I've seen around town.

This is a wonderful shrub, but don't put it in front of a window unless you want to trim it 6-8 times a year! A very fast grower and extremely drought tolerant. Not picky about soil either.
Warning: Every bee in the neighborhood will be at your house when it blooms, so don't put it by the door!
