Didn’t flower since 2020. Looked like I’d lost it over winter. Now flowering better than it ever has and it’s a deeper blue than before. Plants are confusing 😜😂 #ceanothus #californian-lilac #ceanothus-concha

@emch @johnnyuk @juliesgarden @pelly @italydiva @hkyfvr thanks all 😄 it’s strange how some plants seem to have been kicked up the bum by the frosts and some just kicked the bucket 😜😂 thanks to you all being so encouraging I didn’t give up my garden. Was so close, sooooo close 🙈 but seeing lots thriving has been worth the patience 🙏🏻

I guess nature will always throw us a curve ball from time to time, but our gardens will always bring us pleasure. Glad you’ve bounced back 😊

@jeatacake much better than last year but a long way til it looks as good as yours, even if it won’t get much bigger 😅

It looks nice already. Maintaining the shape helps. If you are inclined to prune it, it will soon be time. As soon as the flowers have finished you can do it, but not really any later, as it will flower next year on this year's new growth 👍

@jeatacake was its first year last year so didn’t wanna hack at it just yet. But after flowering it’ll be getting Edward Scissorhanded 😂

@jeatacake I reckon I could do a decent lockdown haircut trade with what I’ve learned from pruning 🤣🤣🤣

5 years ago mine was about 2 ft or so tall. Its really surprised me how fast it's grown & I've never fed it either.

@jeatacake oh wow! That’s crazy growth! Hopefully the pot will restrict mine cos I don’t have space for one your size 😂

What size pot is it in? I might have thought twice about where I planted mine had I known what a monster it would become! 😄

I want to see a close up when it blooms! Does it have 'lilac' scent?

Those buds are colouring up well & plenty of them too 💙 Like most things you have it looks a week or so ahead of mine.

@pelly I’m hoping so 😁 still surprised how much better things look in their second year 😜

@maldavis of course 😁 apparently it is scented but wasn’t noticeable with the very few flowers I had last year 😜

@jeatacake hopefully will be a ball of blooms 😁 a lot of things kickstarted with the sun last week I think. But due a week of cold so you’ll catch up in no time 😛

We'll see. Just glad not too much is in flower just yet though, especially fruit trees. 🍎🍐🍒

@jeatacake oh I forgot about the pollinators. Don’t know how because the bees I’ve been seeing are absolutely ginormous this spring!!!
