If you’re looking for an interesting alternative to traditional box topiary, then this ceanothus could very well be it. Shaped into an elegant pyramid, it’s smart and classic, and a wonderful addition to your garden!
Also known as the Californian Lilac, thyrsiflorus repens is one of the hardiest and easiest to grow of the ceanothus family. It has a naturally compact habit and will look wonderful on a patio or balcony, and especially good in pairs on either side of a doorway. All it needs is a trim after flowering and again in late summer to keep it in shape.
The pale blue flowers look amazing against the dark, glossy evergreen foliage and form a spectacular cloud of colour during May and June and will attract a host of butterflies and other pollinators into your garden, making it invaluable for supporting our native wildlife.
Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.
Supplied as an established plant in a 17cm pot, 65cm in height.
