Ceanothus americanus

New Jersey Tea

A great native shrub that will thrive in a sunny, well-drained location. Four inch long, deep green leaves with hairy, gray reverse tightly pack this branching plant to form a dense, compact, spreading plant that pushes flower stalks from leaf bases on the upper ends of branches in late May filling the garden with sweet fragrance and attracting butterflies and hummingbirds
