Ceanothus martinii | Mountain Lilac is a deciduous shrub with small glossy leaves. It is a low growing plant with an arching form that adds a striking architectural shape to the garden. Small bright flowers shine in abundance in early spring. It is a good choice as an understory plant in dry locations because it does best with a little shade.
