Ceanothus coming into bloom

The native planting near the bird mews in the west garden is starting its early spring bloom season. Over the next few weeks the violet-blue flowers of the low-growing Ceanothus gloriosus var. gloriosus ‘Anchor Bay’ will carpet the mounded landscape area on the south end of the garden. Please take the time to admire and enjoy the beauty of this drought-tolerant, evergreen California native. ‘Anchor Bay’, a selection derived from seed originally collected in southern Mendocino County, was introduced into the nursery trade in the 1970’s.
