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

C. thyrsiflorus repens is a low growing variety (sometimes called Creeping Blue Blossom) and is one of the hardiest Ceanothus available. It forms an attractive mound of evergreen foliage in the border which bursts into fluffy, powder blue blooms in the spring.

This lovely evergreen, which has won the prestigious Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society, looks glorious in the front of a sunny border.
