Ceanothus 'Remote Blue' is a hybrid that arose on the nursery grounds, and is believed to be a hybrid between Ceanothus oliganthus var. sorediatus and Ceanothus griseus. A mountain lilac with dark glossy leaves that reminds one of the Mirror Plant (Coprosma repens/ C. baueri). Well behaved, and growing to 2 meters (5-7 feet) tall and 2 meters (6-8 feet) wide. It has been both drought tolerant and tolerant of regular water. Useful where you need an evergreen hedge that is attractive all year with a bonus of bouquets of fragrant blue flowers. Bark is gray-green to white, and flowers are blue. Remote Blue Ceanothus looks like a shorter squatter version of LT.Blue Ceanothus. It works very well in those shale, clay soils of west Paso Robles and Templeton where everything else is chlorotic while Remote Blue is dark green and stunning. But then again, it commonly has the biggest Frankia I've ever seen. Click here for more about Mountain Lilacs.
