Ceanothus maritimus 'Frosty Dawn'

Maritime Ceanothus

These mostly evergreen ground covers, shrubs and small trees have lightly fragrant blue, white or pink flowers that look like smaller versions of the Common Lilac. North American natives, they do best where summers are dry and they get little water. Known as California or Wild Lilac, they are valued as a drought-tolerant, summer-blooming plant in the West. Usually live 5 to 10 years. Watch for root rot in wet soils, aphids and white fly.
