About This Plant

Island Ceanothus is one of the largest growing species of Ceanothus.  Mature specimens are capable of reaching 15-20 feet.  It grows very fast and can either be used as a mounding shrub on slopes, act as a screen, or be trained into a small tree.  It has large glossy green leaves with light grayish undersides that contrast nicely with grayish bark on the trunk and stems.  Light-blue flower clusters reach about 6 inches in length, and bloom in the late winter and early spring.  Island Ceanothus prefers well-drained soils but will also tolerate heavier soils.  Found along the rocky slopes on Santa Cruz, Santa Rosa and Santa Catalina islands this plant is a member of the Island chaparral community.  Island Ceanothus will grow and perform better in coastal settings but can also work in interior shade when used in warm inland and foothill regions.
