Image of Wart-leaf Ceanothus

A Californian dense evergreen shrub up to 2 or 3m in height. Like all members of the genus it produces magnificent blue flowers during spring and the rough leaves lend year round character. Tends to be slow growing and can be very drought tolerant once established. It will not recover from hard pruning into older wood.
