Ceanothus Frosty Dawn ~ California Lilac

Ceanothus Frosty Dawn is the more tidy selection of the prostrate California Lilac's I have seen. The Ceanothus Frosty Dawn leaves are smooth and clean. These California Lilac's grow about 2 feet tall and spread to 6 feet or so. Ceanothus Frosty Dawn produces its pale blue flowers a little later than many of the other Ceanothus, for us that is in the early-mid spring, where many Ceanothus are almost done blooming by then. This is a cultivar of Ceanothus maritimus. Ceanothus Frosty Dawn is a host plant for the Western Tussock Moth Caterpillar.
