Ceanothus papillosus “Roweanus” – Californian Lilac

This is a large shrub or small tree, typically growing to 4-3M tall and wide. Abundant dense heads of bright blue flower clusters in spring, contrast with the dark foliage.

This is a very unusual plant when in flower. It is almost completely covered in bright blue flowers, which is rare – Wisteria is a climber, Hydrangeas are smaller, Lilac are not this bright blue, and Plumbago is smaller and also not this bright blue.
