Ceanothus, or more commonly known as the Californian Lilac, is a beautiful and easy-to-grow, spreading evergreen shrub that will make a perfect focal point in any garden. Perfect in front of walls and fences, it can be trained onto a trellis making it perfect for growing in a pot if you have limited space.
In late spring, it forms amazing deep-blue clusters of flowers that stand out against the glossy green foliage. 'Italian Skies' will benefit from more sheltered areas in your garden, and it will thrive in a sunny, well-drained position. It is also a favourite with butterflies and bees, so if you are looking to attract wildlife into your garden, this Ceanothus is one for you.
Extremely low maintenance, all it needs is a trim after flowering and again in late summer to keep it in shape.
Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant.
