Seasonal effects

The appearance of shrubs changes between seasons. From a bare plant lying dormant in winter to fresh greenery in spring, in full bloom during summer to leaves changing colour and dropping in autumn. This is a natural process courtesy of mother nature. Our plants will be delivered accordingly.

As soon as possible after delivery, you can plant Ceanothus impressus ‘Victoria’ in the garden. Make sure that the root ball is well moistened, by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a large planting hole and loosen the soil. Put the root ball of the American lilac at the right depth in the planting hole. The top of the root should be just below the ground level. Fill the planting hole with soil and press firmly. Water generously immediately after planting. Ceanothus grows well in well-drained, fairly dry soil. Choose a sheltered spot in full sun.


The American lilac is drought tolerant, but in hot, dry periods, will require some extra water. Waterlogged soil is poorly tolerated, especially in winter. For a healthy and well-shaped tree American Lilac should be pruned every year in March-April. From the centre cut back the larger stems by 1/3rd. Trim back any stems that protrude from the shape of the bush. The bush will flower the same year on the new shoots. Protect Ceanothus from severe frost with a layer of fallen leaves or a reed mat.

Ceanothus in the winter

In well-drained soil California Lilac is mostly hardy. But there are differences between the various species and cultivars. Protect your Ceanothus against frost by covering with a thick layer of fallen leaves or straw matting in the severest of winter weather.

If your California Lilac is potted you definitely must protect it from frost as they are of course more sensitive when grown in a pot. Stand the pot in a light, sheltered spot – in a shed next to a window. If the weather is very severe, wrap the whole pot and plant in garden fleece or straw matting.


The branches of Ceanothus impressus ‘Victoria’ are laden with masses of deep blue flowers all summer long. The leaves remain on the branches in winter. Choose a sheltered spot in the garden, for example, a south facing wall. Also a very good companion with other summer flower in the garden border, such as lavender.
