A B O U T

Simulate expanses of wild California lilac's raw, natural beauty. For a few months in late winter and early spring these purple, white and blue blossoms cluster like misty little clouds over year-round dark glossy foliage.

Best on rocky slopes or soil with excellent drainage. These packs of perfectly bushy ceanothus are complimented with summer pops of pink sage, hot yellow and the giant wild Matilija poppy.
