Rhamnaceae, Ceanothus thyrsiflorus (?) – Berkeley, CA
I took these photos this weekend along a fence in Berkeley, I think its Ceanothus thyrsiflorus, but could very well be wrong or not specific enough (cultivar?).
Its nearing the end of January, unseasonably hot and dry, and these are in full bloom.
Here is a close up of the flower and leaf…
And below, the whole plant.
