Ceanothus

California Lilac (Ceanothus ) is a native shrub that grows up to twelve feet tall. It has attractive, aromatic foliage and bears blue or white flowers in spring. Ceanothus has about 35 species. Most are native to Western North America and Mexico. They grow on dry slopes in scrub or woodland growth. These do well as in a shrub border or as a specimen plant and can be purchased from mail order nurseries if not found locally. They are well suited for Descanso dry or woodland gardens, or as a speciman. Typical life as a landscape plant is short, often less than ten years.
