Ceanothus Yankee Point is a stunning evergreen shrub that will add a pop of colour and texture to any garden. This variety is a hybrid between Ceanothus griseus and Ceanothus papillosus, and is known for its profuse clusters of sky-blue flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer. The flowers are highly fragrant and attract a variety of pollinators, including bees and butterflies.
At maturity, Ceanothus Yankee Point can reach a height of up to 2.5 meters and a spread of up to 2.5 meters as well. It has a dense, bushy habit with small, glossy green leaves that provide a beautiful backdrop to the flowers. This plant is ideal for a mixed border or as a stand-alone feature in a sunny, well-draining spot.
Ceanothus Yankee Point is best grown in full sun to ensure optimal flowering and growth. It prefers well-draining soil and does not tolerate waterlogged conditions, so it is important to ensure good drainage when planting. This plant is drought-tolerant once established and requires minimal maintenance. Pruning is best carried out immediately after flowering to promote bushy growth and to maintain its shape.
Overall, Ceanothus Yankee Point is a highly ornamental and easy-to-grow shrub that will thrive in most garden settings. Its stunning blue flowers, lush foliage, and low-maintenance requirements make it a popular choice among gardeners looking to add colour and interest to their landscapes.
