Shade Grade: D
Possibility for the sunnier spots in the yard. Not super cold hardy.
Ceanothus ‘Diamond Heights’
UPDATE: Now that we have more sun to the south, I’m trying again! I couldn’t resist, I love the color and habit.
This plant looked good for quite a while until it up and died one winter. It never got very big, but looked generally healthy until that fateful year. I loved the shiny yellow-green leaves which is a color difficult to find in shade plants. In fact, I would consider buying it again, even if just as a decorative annual for a pot on the deck.
