‘Concha’ is quite possibly the prettiest of the bush type Ceanothus. When in bloom, sky blue puffs festoon the entire plant, sometimes completely obscuring the leaves. When not in bloom, the foliage is a rich green, and still makes for a good looking bush. In years of particularly rough drought, deer may munch on this Ceanothus, but generally it will survive the attention. In these years, make sure some winter irrigation happens. Ceanothus ‘Concha’ is an excellent choice when your landscape needs a natural looking point of elevation that, depending on the season, can either be a focal point or gracefully provide a backdrop in a drought tolerant garden.
