If you are wanting to add all-year round interest and colour to your garden, the Ceanothus 'Trewithen Blue' makes a fabulous choice. It is one of only a few plants that offer stunning blue flowers, creating an usual and wonderful display.

Californian Lilac is an ever-green, keeping its dark green leaves all year round, adding colour when other plants are bare. The flowers burst forth in mid to late spring in the form of weighty dark blue clusters. They have a slight honey perfume and attract bees, butterflies and birds into your space, bringing sound and movement. The flowers can become so heavy that the branches arch downwards – a stunning sight to see!

Ceanothus arboreus 'Trewithen Blue' is frost hardy and is best suited to moist, well-drained sites and all soils except clay. Try to keep your plant protected from windy conditions by planting in a sheltered area or against a wall. It can be planted and trained as a climbing shrub or as a small tree reaching heights of 6m and a spread of 5m in a 20 year period. If you have green-fingers, you can train it as an espalier or a fan.

A holder of an RHS Award of Garden Merit, the Ceanothus 'Trewithen Blue' makes a fabulous display all-year round. Makes a wonderful gift idea for new home owners who are establishing a young garden.
