Few shrubs can rival the sight of a well-grown dark blue flowered Ceanothus in bloom, and Julia Phelps California Lilac is one of the most striking of all California Lilacs. Dark blue flowers emerge in spring and smother its dark green, crinkly foliage on a moderately sized shrub. Use Ceanothus in any California native landscape or where drought tolerant plants are desired.

Plant Care

Requires soil with good drainage. After planting, water regularly until roots are established then reduce frequency to occasional irrigation. Does not tolerate soggy soil. Prune lightly in late summer to maintain size and shape.
