Ceanothus arboreus ‘Trewithen Blue’, fast-growing, short-lived, beautiful.  This seems to be a popular option at the moment.  I am aspiring to the slow-growing, long-lived, might pull a comb through my hair on a special occasion, approach.  Unfortunately I am not at liberty to make these kind of decisions, my fate is with the gods. In the meantime I will try my best to enjoy every second and appreciate the wonder of the ephemeral.

  1. I have lusted after Ceanothus ever since seeing a magnificent specimen of ‘Gloire de Versailles’ trained against a wall at Sissinghurst back in the 1970s. Alas, they are not hardy here in Zone 7; the nurseries claim so, but that’s only in the event of an unusually mild winter which happens once in a blue (sorry!) moon.
