An evergreen shrub which has dark green, glossy leaves and masses of attractive, vivid blue flowers in early to mid summer. Ceanothus 'Concha' is a delightful flowering shrub for the back of a sunny, mixed border and also looks particularly good when planted against a warm wall, where it can be trained to shape if required.

Ceanothus are unsuitable for cold, exposed gardens as they may well suffer damage in the winter.
