A Bit More

Do you love the look of Ceanothus, but have heavy clay soil? Stop for a moment, and contemplate C. thyrsiflorus ‘Skylark’, it just might fit the bill. A slow grower, Ceanothus thyrsiflorus is easy to maintain at 3’x3’ if you’re inclined, and makes a great hedge in a butterfly garden. Seeds are eaten by many small birds and the bush provides cover for them. Grow in full sun, and in just about any type of soil, this one can tolerate less swift drainage than other members of its genus.
