Ceanothus 'Dark Star'

This large shrub is a show stopper when it is in bloom. Masses of small dark flowers honey the air on a warm spring day. Rounded, dark green leaves are small, thick and deeply impressed with veins giving the plant a textured appearance when it is out of bloom. Even though Ceanothus `Dark Star' is often rated as a Zone 9 plant, it has stood up to record cold winters in Portland with only minor damage.

Late spring.  6 ft. x 10 ft.

Dark Purple Blue flowers
