Ceanothus can be evergreen or deciduous shrubs or small trees, with simple leaves and small blue, pink or white flowers in profuse axillary or terminal clusters. They are fast-growing but may be short-lived.
'Snow Flurries' is a wonderful selection of ceanothus from the central California coastline. This rapid growing shrub has large, dark green leaves and pure white flower clusters that appear in spring. Something quite unusual compared to the regular blue ceanothus. Ideally suited for coastal situations, it does well on heavy soils.
