Answer: Ceanothus are such beautiful shrubs that I think every garden should have one! They are, however, rather exacting in their needs. In the wild, Ceanothus grows on rocky slopes. In your garden, they need light, well-draining soil. They prefer dry soil, but will tolerate occasional watering during the summer months. If you keep the soil too moist, they will die. Full sunshine is required for best growth, but a few hours of afternoon shade shouldn't reduce the blooming ability of your Ceanothus.
Hope the above information helps you adjust the growing conditions to suit your Ceanothus! Best wishes with your landscape!
