Ceanothus ‘Matilija Bob’ is a random hybrid thanks to open pollination from our bee friends. We’ve been growing them and selling them for a few years now. Mature size is about H 6′ x W 6′ in sun or semi-shaded areas. Lots of flowers in spring and fall with very very very dark green dense foliage. Seems to be tolerant of extra water, heavy soils, and some pruning.
