Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
CEANOTHUS x pallidus
Dark glossy leaves are found on this small deciduous shrub. The open, loose branch tips are are topped with fluffy pink flower panicles for many weeks in summer. Parent plants of pink ceanothus are Ceanothus delilianus and Ceanothus ovatus.
This hybrid pink ceanothus likes a full sun exposure in a light, well draining soil. It will tolerate warm dry sites. It seems unaffected by and tolerant of summer waterings, which is not typical of most ceanothus. Since flowering occurs on new growth, prune the shrub back each spring to encourage full and tidy rejuvenating branches. Sometimes a rebloom may occur in the autumn if the spent flower branch tips are trimmed off. This plant is nice in a mixed border or English-style garden and can be used as a small espalier.
'Marie Simon' and 'Pearle Rose' both have nice pink flowers of slight difference.
