Ceanothus Blue Sapphire

Ceanothus Blue Sapphire

An exciting Ceanothus...

A great new introduction from New Zealand, with emerald green foliage darkening in the cooler seasons, and abundant dark sapphire blue flowers produced in the spring. It will do well in full sun or partial shade, and once established will survive drought-like conditions. We recommend feeding with our Trevena cross fertiliser in the spring!
