Hardy evergreen nitrogen fixing shrub with glossy dark green leaves which are larger and rounder than the other ceanothus species we stock. Providing a stunning show of blue flowers in spring which attracts bees by the hive-load! Very drought hardy, great on banks, hot, dry hillsides or for hedging. Full sun, any soil type as long as it’s not waterlogged. Can be eaten by stock but best for emergency fodder only as the shrubs won’t recover if browsed or pruned too hard. Fast growing to a height of 2m and spread of 2m. A Kahikatea Farm favourite!
