Ceanothus thyrsiflorus

Compact and densely branching with pleasing glossy emerald green leaves and a long bloom season, California native hybrid ‘Skylark’ has much to tout. Fast growing to 3-5’ tall and a bit wider, this handsome evergreen shrub is easy to use as an accent in smaller spaces or as a groundcover or even a hedge. Abundant clusters of fragrant cerulean blue flowers burst into a breathtaking display from Spring into Summer and often again in Fall in cooler climates.Tolerates heat, clayish soiland Summer water better than most “California Lilacs” and is quite frost hardy to 5-10°F. Requires some Summer water inland once established. Deer resistant!
