Description

You either have it or you don’t. Ceanothus impressus ‘Cool Blue’ has it. This plant is cooler than cool with its handsome, blue looks. Cool Blue has striking silvery, variegated foliage. It has small, dark green leaves with cream white edges. This variety is a mutation of the very winter hardy Ceanothus Skylark. Cool Blue blooms abundantly with beautiful dark blue flowers. It truly deserves the name Cool Blue! Prune in summer. Plant in full sun in any type of soil. This Ceanothus blooms in spring with lightly fragrant flowers. Cool Blue has a compact size of 28" high and 16" wide. This plant looks very cool as solitary on your terrace or balcony, in plant borders or in mixed containers.
