Ceanothus Blue Sensation is a large, vigorous, fast-growing, upright, evergreen shrub with elegant arching branches and small, glossy, green leaves. In spring and early summer, it bears fluffy clusters of stunning pale blue to dark blue flowers, which are rare in ornamental gardens, covering almost the whole plant. Attractive to bees and butterflies. Ceanothus Blue Sensation prefers average, slightly alkaline, moist but well-drained soils, in full sun. It is tolerant to salt, poor, shallow, rocky and sandy soils. It naturally grows in coastal areas, near the streams, on wooded slopes and canyons. Once established, it is drought tolerant. Generally, pest-free and disease-free. It doesn’t like to be moved or hard pruned. Ceanothus Blue Sensation is a beautiful and resilient shrub. It will add superb beauty to any garden. It is perfect for coastal, urban, and cottage gardens. Great for wall-side borders, banks and slopes, hedges and screens.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
