California Mountain Lilac

Ceanothus 'Concha'
Out of stock

Gorgeous Blue Flowers on Drought-Resistant Plants!

California Mountain Lilac (Ceanothus 'Concha') is one of the first named and longest cultivated ceanothus in existence. It was first named and sold in 1946 from a little nursery in California.

You're probably asking, "Why the history lesson?" Well, because when you buy and plant these gorgeous shrubs, we want you to know that these beauties have truly stood the test of time and will be great additions to your garden. If they've been on the market for almost 75 years then you know that there are a lot of pleased customers! We hope to add you to that number.

These hardy West Coast natives have gracefully arching branches that are covered in deep green, evergreen leaves. In the spring they are covered in reddish-purple buds that will mature to rich bluish-purple flower clusters that are stunning from near or far in the garden.

Wildlife - especially mockingbirds, finches, and quail - love it for both the cover it provides and the seeds it produces. (Deer, on the other hand, seem to find it pretty unappetizing.)

They don't need (or especially like) coddling or fussing. They thrive on low water and in challenging soil. Too much water and too-rich soil is a sure-fire way to kill them.

Know that you're in good company when you order your California Mountain Lilac from us today!
