Ceanothus “Emily Brown” is a broadly mounding shrub that will get 3 ft. tall, and as wide as you would like. One of the Holly-Leafed Ceanothuses, it is deer-resistant.
Did I mention that lots of the Ceanothuses are in bloom at the nursery? I can prove it to you.
Classic lilac color and floral scented, the bees go crazy around these.
