Ceanothus “Blue Jeans”
I caught this one just before the buds opened. This is an unusual ceanothus, what with the very small glossy dark green leaves. Deer resistant, it grows to 6 ft. tall! Interesting. Quite the lavender color, or I suppose it may be called lilac, but I think it’s more lavender.
Wikipedia thinks it might be a light mauve, even. But definitely more lavender than lilac.
