Ceanothus sorediatus

Jim Bush.

We currently do not grow this plant.

Ceanothus sorediatus can be an very fast and vigorous evergreen shrub or small tree with dark green foliage with a hint of gray that grows to twenty feet. This is another chameleon. In interior clays it will be very small leaved with white bark and tight growing about three feet per year, topping out at eight feet. Put it in a coastal garden and it will be eight foot the first year, dark green with 2" leaves, topping out at twenty feet! You'd never guess the plants came from the same parent. Good fast filler or hedge. Medium blue flowers make good show. It seems to be deer proof in most areas. No damage at 0 degree F.. Lets see, fast, relatively drought and deer proof, and pretty. Native soils are usually adobe or serpentine, but the plants have done fine in San Joaquin Loam and chaparral gravelly decomposed granite. Click here for more about California Lilacs (Ceanothus). Why do the roots of some of the Ceanothus look funny?
