This Beautiful hybrid lilac has dark green foliage and medium blue flowers which bloom in vibrant color for several weeks in spring. This variety will tolerate pruning and a wide range of garden conditions. It is fast-growing and is a beautiful choice for large slopes, or above a retaining wall, or anywhere you want a low-water yet lush flowering plant. Due to the width of this plant you can cover large areas with just a few plants.
If you're looking for a vibrant splash of bright blue in your garden, you can't go wrong with a California lilac (Ceanothus). There are around fifty pollinator-friendly, flowering, drought-tolerant shrub species in the Ceanothus genus. Most are evergreens, but there are also some deciduous options. They can be free-standing or used as border plants or informal hedges. Many gardeners choose to train certain cultivars to climb walls, fences, or even door arches. Plant California lilacs in spring.
