Image of Ceanothus

Jesse Saylor

(California Lilac)

Long before these California natives caught on out west, the English developed ‘Cascade’ in 1938, the first hybrid suited to the rainy, cool climate of Great Britain. It is believed to have come from Ceanothus thyrsifolius, which shares an enormous range from Santa Barbara to Oregon. This upright shrub produces small dark glossy green leaves with a unique wrinkled surface.

‘Cascade’ blooms heavily mid to late spring with clusters of tiny blue flowers at the branch tips. Due to the...

(California Lilac, Santa Barbara Ceanothus, Victoria Wild Lilac, Wild Lilac)

A drought-tolerant hybrid California lilac, 'Victoria' produces lots of alluring blue flowers in early summer. It has dense, evergreen foliage and an appealing bushy habit. Some speculate that this cultivar is synonymous with Ceanothus 'Skylark.'

The glossy, dark green leaves of this selection have deep, conspicuous surface veins. Lots of showy, elongated clusters of sky blue flowers appear in mid to late spring. Butterflies love the beautiful blooms.

For best results, grow 'Victoria'...

(Carmel Creeper)

Carmel ceanothus is a vigorous, drought tolerant, evergreen shrub native to California. In late spring to early summer, this reliable bloomer bears prolific pale to dark blue flower clusters against glossy green leaves with gray undersides.

There are several great cultivars available. 'Yankee Point' is a heavy-flowering, more compact selection with a very broad horizontal habit, and 'Santa Ana' has a broad, spreading habit and very dark blue flowers.

Though tolerant of lime, this plant thrives...

(Blue Blossom, Blue Brush)

The cool blue color and vigorous upright form of this evergreen shrub made it a popular early landscape shrub for California gardens. Parent to many contemporary Ceanothus hybrid cultivars, blue blossom is pretty in its own right, though a little wilder and rangier than formal cultivated forms. It is native across the western American coastal mountain ranges from Santa Barbara, California up to Oregon. Wild coastal specimens are found in more open natural landscapes, but further inland they...

(Harrington's Plum Yew, Spreading Plum Yew)

Harrington's plum yew is a needled evergreen shrub or small tree with an upright to arching and spreading habit. This native of Korea and Japan is yew-like in appearance and has glossy, flattened dark green needles with silvery bands on their undersides. It is technically coniferous, but much like true yews its round fruits have a fleshy, purple-red exterior. Fruits only exist on female plants and appear in late summer to fall.

Plum yew grows well in sandy, well drained soil. Where climates...

Though technically coniferous, its round fruits have a fleshy, purple-red exterior, much like that of true yews. Fruits only exist on female plants and appear in late summer to fall.
