    love ceanothus – sadly it’s too cold where I am to make them happy, they are beautiful when in bloom

    I really like the leaves on that specific ceanothus…it almost looks like it has tiny holly or cork oak leaves doesn’t it? 🙂

      Yeah, I agree, tend to like the small leaved Ceanothus most, very oaklike. Ceanothus are related to Ziziphus spp. (Jujube), in the Rhamnaceae family. Do you grow Jujube in Tazmania? Seems like it would do great there.

        I would LOVE to grow them but I would have to import them from the mainland methinks. I love Chinese Red Dates (what we call them here 🙂 )

    Thanks for spotlighting Ceanothus. It’s a star on so many levels: evergreen, nitrogen nodes, gorgeous flowers, easy care. I think I love it as much as the bees do!
