Ceanothus arboreus 'Trewithen Blue'

Blue At The Far End Of The Herbaceous Border

First mentioned in the blog entry of the 17th May 2013 'Blue Is The Colour', the Ceanothus growing against the wall at the far end of the herbaceous border is now putting on an even more impressive blue floral display. Now a much larger, more mature shrub that towers above the wall it once sat at the bottom of and, with its mass of pale blue flowers, has stopped a number of visitors in their tracks all asking the question, what is that amazing blue plant? The answer Ceanothus arboreus 'Trewithen Blue', (Californian Lilac).
