Ceanothus Southmead

Californian Lilac Southmead

Early summer-flowering Ceanothus Southmead is a small, evergreen shrub with a dense, bushy habit. Small, glossy, finely toothed deep-green leaves beautifully set off the intensely blue flower-spikes, produced in May and June. Good wall-trained. Will only survive a few degrees of frost, and needs the protection of a warm wall in any but the mildest area. Very easy to grow; does not need much, if any pruning, but should be pruned in spring if necessary. Californian lilac Southmead holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
