Ceanothus 'Lemon & Lime' (PBR)

Californian lilac

3 litre pot £19.99
3 litre pot £19.99
  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to May
  • Hardiness: frost hardy (may need winter protection in cold areas)

    The relatively long and slender leaves of this new, British bred ceanothus are an attractive (and somewhat irregular) blend of creamy yellow and green. This provides a very showy backdrop for the clusters of rich blue flowers, which appear in spring. Offering year-round colour and interest with its attractive foliage, this evergreen shrub looks wonderful when trained against a warm, sunny wall or fence.

  • Garden care: Each year after the plant has flowered, take out any dead, diseased or damaged shoots. Apply a 5-7cm mulch of well-rotted organic matter around the base of the plant in autumn.
