This fantastic award-winning shrub, often called the creeping blue blossom is a must have dwarf variety. Beautiful in its simplicity, its rich glossy green leaves nestle amongst sky blue flowers comprising of densely compact panicles that burst into bloom like tiny fireworks in spring and early summer. This evergreen variety grows to a compact height of just 1-1.5m but its vigorous spreading habit means that it can grow up to 2-4m wide making it a perfect border or feature plant. It also looks beautiful planted against a wall, where it will grow much taller. A holder of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, this hardy Ceanothus will attract butterflies and bees into the garden. 15-20cm plants supplied in 9cm pots.
