About This Plant

Cobalt blue flowers and rich green foliage make this plant one of the most outstanding Ceanothus cultivars available.  This fast growing mounding evergreen shrub reaches 6 feet tall by 6 feet wide in 3 to 4 years.  It performs best in full sun and well-drained soil with water once or twice a month.  With a dense, arching form Concha makes a good slope cover, medium screen or barrier.  You can use it as a specimen in a large-scale mixed shrub planting. For a gorgeous spring color show, set it against a backdrop of yellow-flowering Fremontia ‘Cal Glory’ and scatter orange-flowering California Poppies in front. Charles Samms discovered this old-timer in 1949 in his nursery in San Dimas, California.  ‘Concha’ is a hybrid of Ceanothus impressus and Ceanothus papillosus var. roweanus.  Ceanothus ‘Concha’ is one of the oldest and most reliable hybrids in cultivation and is still thought to be one of the best.
