Regarded as one of the hardiest of the California Lilacs, Ceanothus ‘Victoria’ is a vigorous, bushy, evergreen shrub noted for its abundant clusters of brilliant indigo blue flowers in late spring and early summer. The flowers are so profuse that they literally cover the bush, creating a breathtaking floral display. The blooms are borne on gracefully arching branches clad with shiny, dark green leaves. Usually ignored by deer, this pretty shrub is prized by birds, butterflies and hummingbirds. A fast grower, this spectacular shrub is extremely drought tolerant once established. A great California Lilac selection for coastal gardens.
