Ceanothus Concha

Ceanothus Concha


Currently Out of Stock

Flowering around April to May (depending on the year), the Ceanothus, also known as the Californian lilac, is the most distinctive shrub, producing a mass of brilliant blue flowers. Not only are the flowers a dazzling colour, but they are pollen/nectar rich and hugely attractive to native pollinating insects. 

C. Concha is a particularly fine example of this evergreen shrub, its branches arching attractively with the weight of small, shiny leaves and abundant flowers. This statement shrub is a familiar sight in many cottage gardens, billowing blue blossoms over fences or against local dry stone walls, for a very good reason.
