Ceanothus Concha is a fantastic evergreen that comes in to its own in late spring, producing a dazzling display of dark blue flowers over its arching branches, themselves covered in dark green leaves.

Also known as Californian Lilac, It is the perfect choice for a bright sunny mixed border, ideally on a free draining soil. When planted towards the back of a border or against a fence it makes an excellent backdrop for other plants throughout the rest of the year. In winter, thanks to retaining it's foliage, you will also have nice evergreen cover.

Supplied as Standard Evergreen Tree, when in flower, these look absolutely resplendent in bright blue. Concha will make an attractive tree for the patio or garden with its lovely dark evergreen foliage and beautiful blue flowers from late Spring into early summer. The foliage looks smart all year round, forming a neat Lollipop head above the clear stem.

These Ceanothus trees are ideal in a pot on the patio, simply clip the head of foliage to keep in shape and maintain a smart topiary look. Normally only offered as a bush, we have limited quantities of these available as a stunning standard tree.
