Ceanothus

Ceanothus x delileanus ‘Gloire de Versailles’ full sun

The large, glossy green foliage of this relaxed-looking Ceanothus creates an excellent foil for the profuse powdery blue flowers. More so than other species in the genus, this one will tolerate summer irrigation. Try it in the mixed border with white Lavender or yellow blooming Buddleja ‘Honeycomb’ and you’ll see why it came to be called the ‘Glory of Versailles’.

Blooms June – September.

Size: 6' high x 6' wide; hardy to zone 6.

Current Staff’s Favorite Plant

Our favorite plant this week. We love Euphorbia ‘Helen Robinson’ because while the rest of the garden looks like winter, this plant looks like spring! From the robbiae side of the family, this choice, stalwart Euphorbia inherits its compact stature, shade tolerance, and handsome, stout rosettes of blunt-tipped, dark green leaves; the characias side contributes the good-sized chartreuse flower heads. In our garden, it acccompanies Anchusa with a carpet of Corydalis ‘Pere David’ skirting beneath.

Customer Comment:

“As a customer of many years' standing, long before online gardening was even possible, I can testify that the plants from Digging Dog have been consistently healthy and hardy through the years. They are also the biggest plants I've ever received by mail. Enormous root systems!”
