Ceanothus

Ceanothus L.


Ceanothus is a North American genus of ca. 55 species (some extending to Central America). Most species have colourful inflorescences and at least 39 are cultivated as ornamentals in Europe (McKean 1997). Hybridisation frequently occurs, in the wild as well as in cultivation. One (notho-)species, probably the most popular in cultivation, has been recorded as an outcast.
