Ceanothus thyrsiflorus 'Snow Flurry'
An evergreen shrub that grows rapidly- up to ten feet tall and wide. The white flowers bloom in the spring. This plant is great for hedges, shrubs, screens, or can be trained into a small tree.
Pinch and lightly prune in spring after flowering. You can remove flower clusters right after blooming to encourage a denser growth habit. If given too much water it will be short lived. You shouldn’t cut into any new growth that is larger around than a pencil. Larger cuts heal slowly and become infected with apricot dieback fungus, fungal spores are spread by rain.
