French hybrid ceanothus. Broadly oval, green leaves and large 4-6" panicles of powder blue, scented flowers bloom mid-summer to fall. Deciduous to semi-deciduous in Southern California, this bushy shrub grows to 8' tall. In areas of California with mild winters, these plants can be pruned in late autumn rather than spring. Excellent choice for colder climates, but requiring regular water too. Hardy to 10F. Ceanothus x delilianus 'Gloire de Versailles' is available this week in #1 containers.
