Ceanothus 'Puget Blue' is a deciduous shrub grown for its vibrant displays of blue flowers borne in late spring. The foliage is small, glossy and dark green.

Ceanothus require a sunny protected site, being only marginally hardy, though they cope well with seaside conditions. Soil should be well drained and not excessively alkaline. Prune after flowering has finished. Do not cut into old wood.
