Ceanothus americanus (new jersey tea)


New Jersey tea has a lot going for it. This mounding summer bloomer is covered in many white clusters of fragrant flowers that also make nice cuttings for bouquet. However, you’ll have to leave some for all the pollinators that flock to this shrub in summer. It is also a host plant for multiple caterpillars and is drought resistant. Be sure to platn it in poor quality soil with no compaction.
