Woollyleaf Ceanothus

This California native can reach a height of up to thirteen feet tall and twenty feet wide.  Blue flower clusters bloom in spring.  The dense leaves are evergreen and have matted hairs underneath.  This chaparral ceanothus can be found in the foothills of Riverside and San Diego.  

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.
