Re: Giant Ceanothus ??

Message from Nicola

In forum: Identify a plant

Hi Richard, some really helpful replies on our social media.

"Ceanothus dentatus, methinks. It can be pruned back slightly after flowering to shape it, if you find it ungainly. They don’t last for ever, maybe 20-25 years. Water and mulch well after pruning."
"They do have a habit of going a bit mad! I think we're all reluctant to prune and lose a season's flowers but it has to be done."
"Ceanothus thyrsiflorus Snow Flurry"
"Ceanothus Millerton Point probably"
"Ceanothus thyrsiflorus ‘Millerton Point’"

Hope that helps!

Giant Ceanothus ??

Question from Richard Spratt

In forum: Identify a plant

I think that nearly 20 years ago I bought a Ceanothus, but it has grown enormous, much bigger than our previous 3’ tall bush. As you can see from the first photo it is now 20’ tall and the trunk is 6” diameter.

Re: Ceanothus thyrsiflorus - we have recently planted several plants and some are doing very well whilst other are starting to show yellowed stems and leaves. Any ideas please?

Has it been dry where you are? What soil are you planted in? Is it at all chalky?

Are you in a place that doesn't get severely cold winter weather - there's a hardy Gardenia (Kleim's hardy) and a delightful plant called Pittosporum tobira (there seems to be a variety called 'nanum' and a variegated one!). I've never seen a dwarf Choisiya, and Ceanothus has only a light scent.
Do you want the scent in summer?
Maybe Sarcococca humilis (sweet box) might do if you want scent earlier in the year.

I'm trying to find a couple of dwarf evergreen shrubs - Choysia and Ceanothus to plant in my border with a Silver Queen Hebe preferably scented. Can you suggest any plants to fit in this area please ?
Many thanks

There are quite a few ceanothus from ground covers to pretty sizable shrubs, the leaf and flower look like ceanothus.

As Nicola says, the one on the left looks like a ceanothus, the one on the right is Abutilon megapotamicum.

Hi Ellie, the first plant looks like a Ceanothus to me. And the second one looks like a type of Abutilon. I hope that helps? Cheers, Nicola

Re: What is this blue-flowered shrub trained against a wall?

Message from MARTIN SANDS

In forum: Identify a plant

I've seen the other posts and I'd be very surprised if this is not a Ceanothus.
I know that Shoot uses the RHS hardiness ratings, but I also use this map http://www.trebrown.com/hrdzone.html . You'll see that the Dunrobin Castle area is warmer than the north-east coast of England where I am, and I've never had any problem growing Ceanothus.
Hope that helps.

Thank you for the prompt response. Sadly, I don't believe any of the ceanothus are hardy in my area. SK

It is up side down but I think it is one of the Ceanothus. The RHS website has 4 that flower in the summer

I never knew Ceanothus came in pink or with broader leaves. All the pics I could find of Gloire de Versailles are blue - but I found a pink one called Marie Simon. Could that be it?

The leaves are nothing like ceanothus which are small and rounded.
Maybe some sort of Deutzia?

Please can someone identify this shrub?

Question from Freddie Dunkley

In forum: Identify a plant

I inherited this shrub when I moved into my property eleven years ago. Someone told me it was a pink ceanothus, but no-one has been able to confirm it.
It is currently 7' tall and 4' wide, with a slightly drooping habit. The leaves are up to 4" long. The flowers in the picture are the second flush this season. It was covered in bloom in June and once over, I trimmed the shrub, dead-heading it, bringing the current flowers. It is deciduous, and requires quite a lot of dead twigs removing each year. It flowers on current season's growth.
