Ceanothus 'Yankee Point'

From £8.99

Ceanothus, which is also commonly known as Californian Lilac, is a lovely evergreen flowering shrub that is very popular amongst the bees. This shrub flowers from summer through to autumn and it can be easily be trained against a wall or fence to form a hedge.

Californian Lilac shrubs and hedging plants are ideal for bringing colour, texture and wildlife to your garden. The bold, blue flowers that appear in summer through to autumn are a hit with bees and we're sure you'll find many buzzing around your garden in no time. This shrub can also be used as a hedging plant due to its upright growth habit. Although Ceanothus is evergreen, it can loose some leaves in the winter. 

Also known as Autumnal Blue, this hedging and shrub can be easily maintained and it will do well in most soil types. This attractive shrub is a great choice if you are looking to bring a fresh look to your garden. Please also see our garden shrubs range for more varities of Ceanothus.

1. Select Root Type

Bare Root 

Bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the planting season but they can be pre-ordered in summer to guarantee your stock. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options and the cheapest way to plant a hedge.

Root Ball 

Root ball plants are also seasonal stock as they can only be lifted when they are dormant, from November to March (weather dependant). These plants are scooped out of the ground like an ice-cream using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks.  They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly. Root ball hedging plants give an instant effect and are a cheaper alternative to instant trough grown hedging. 

Pot Grown 

Pot grown plants can be planted year round and they are our mose convenient option of hedging plants. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements. From small 2L shrubs to large 15L extra tall hedging, there will be a pot grown plant for any garden type. 

Instant Hedging 

Our Instant Hedging is grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season to create a dramatic, instant hedge effect. If you are looking for a quick fix or an instant impact, Instant Trough Grown hedging is the solution for you.
