Features

notes
Also known as ‘Californian Lilac’, Ceanothus Italian Skies is a medium sized shrub, producing a mass of frothy bright blue flowers in spring. These act as a magnet for pollinators, the plant humming with the sound of bees. Small, shiny dark green leaves bestow a year-round evergreen structure to the garden, ideal for use as a backdrop to colourful perennials in the border.
