    Few shrubs can rival the sight of a well-grown dark blue flowered Ceanothus in bloom, and Ceanothus ‘Julia Phelps’ is one of the most striking of all California Lilacs. Dark blue flowers emerge in spring and smother the small dark green, crinkly foliage on a moderately sized shrub. Very similar to ‘Dark Star’ in containers but in the landscape, Dark Star California Lilac has darker leaves and grows wider. Use ‘Julia Phelps’ in any California native landscape as a privacy screen or accent plant. Grows well in inland gardens. Drought tolerant. Attracts birds, bees, and butterflies.

    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.
