WANTED: wanted - ceanothus

Anyone out there help with suggestions as to nurseries that might stock or import large quantity of Ceanothus? I'm looking for 300 plants for my farm on Saltspring island.

I've emailed several on Vancouver island but not one has replied with a quotation.

Have you tried Briggs nursery in Olympia? They're wholesale only, but they do carry Ceanothus 'Victoria'. I have this one, and it's a fantastic, quick-growing plant that blooms it's head off every year.


RE: Ceanothus

Oops, they're in Elma, not Olympia.


RE: WANTED: wanted - ceanothus

In case you are looking for native ceanothus (C. sanguineus/ C. velutinus, etc.) in large quantities, you might try Plants of the Wild in Tekoa, WA or Fourth Corner Nursery just outside of Bellingham.

I know that Fourth Corner is out of stock for this season, but you can reserve bare root plants for late 2006.

According to the availability list at Plants of the Wild, there are plants available.

I am familiar with regulations for importing plants from Canada to the U.S., but not the other way around.

Funny you should mention non-returned e-mails, I tried to order from some BC nurseries and had the same problem as you.

Here is a link that might be useful: Plants of the Wild Nursery
