Ceanothus ‘Centennial’ (also known as Wild Lilac) is a mounding groundcover shrub growing to approximately 1 foot tall by 6 to 8 feet wide with small shiny dark green leaves and round dark blue flower clusters that bloom in spring. Best to plant in light shade. It makes a good groundcover. ‘Centennial’ is considered to be more heat tolerant and requires less summer water than Ceanothus ‘Yankee Point’. Heavy or alkaline soils should be avoided. Plant in full sun to light shade.
