Perfect for dry slopes and anywhere you want a tough, evergreen groundcover. This low but wide California native shrub is easy to grow and an all around valiant and durable garden plant. Heat and drought tolerant, it will survive upwards of 20 years so long as you don’t water! That’s not much to ask, is it? Smothered with fragrant, beautiful lilac blue flowers in Spring (which are attractive to birds and bees and butterflies), this Ceanothus is deer, fire and clay tolerant and survives to zero degrees Fahrenheit! No muss, no fuss! To 2’ high and 8’ wide.
