  • RHS Award of Garden Merit

Ceanothus, or Californian Lilac, are evergreen shrubs with small glossy leaves and fluffy flowers which are usually blue. Ceanothus 'Blue Mound' has compact bright blue flowers in May and June which attract pollinating insects. Enjoy its mounded form in a sunny border or in a wildlife garden. Mature plants reach about 1.5 metres high and as much as 2.5 metres across.

Plant in moist, but well-drained soil. Try growing it alongside pale yellow roses or, for a zingier effect, with a deep orange flowered Berberis such as B. darwinii. In spring, to maintain the mound-like form, prune the previous year’s flowered stems to within 2 or 3 buds of the woody framework.

How you will receive your plants:

Selected by our team of experts and sent from our nursery, you will receive your plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant out.

Can’t plant straight away?

Place in a sheltered spot and water regularly to keep the compost moist.

Dig a hole approximately twice as deep and 3 times as wide as the plant’s rootball. If your soil is heavy mix in a soil improver before backfilling. Firm the soil around the plant and water thoroughly.

Water shrubs regularly in the first year after planting and in dry periods
