Ceanothus are native to much of the Americas and are particularly abundant in the wild in California. They are a well known and widely planted shrub with many varieties. Ceanothus griseus var. horizontalis Yankee Point is a low growing, spreading form that is more compact than the species plant and has darker blue flowers. This plant forms a prostrate shrub with small dark green leaves and vibrant blue flowers in abundance in early summer. Yankee point prefers a full sun location and 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.
