Ceanothus: I'm in Arkansas, zone 7. I've seen pictures of blue ceanothus and would like to grow some, but can it be grown in the South?

RE: Ceanothus

You can try looking for Ceanothus 'Henri Defosse' which is a cross between the native Ceanothus americana and the mexican one. Another cultivar is 'Gloire de Versailles'.

RE: Ceanothus

I've done a fair amount of research on it. Everything I have read says it does not like our humid summers. It grows extremely well in California. Similar winters, but entirely different summers. Such a shame. It's beautiful.
