Ceanothus Autumnal Blue

Ceanothus Autumnal Blue - California Lilac - 9 cm Pot
Availability: In stock

Originating in the Americas and particularly abundant in the wild in California, Ceanothus have become a well known and widely planted shrub with many varieties available. Autumnal Blue is probably the hardiest evergreen variety. It forms a slightly open upright shrub with small mid green leaves and rich sky blue flowers in abundance in late summer and autumn and often in the spring as well. Is not very tolerant of chalky or wet soil but thrives in coastal locations. This plant can be used in a mixed planting or as a stand alone specimen in the garden or a container. If planting in a pot or other container. Use a good quality John Innes compost as this plant will be there a long time and peaty types of compost eventually degrade and become too packed and choke the roots. Ensure you feed regularly as a hungry plant is a poor performer. We recommend Osmoscote pro 12-14 month applied in the early spring. One application gives all the nutrients the plant requires for the whole year. John Innes is a soils based compost.
