sunset wgc logoCeanothus ‘Diamond Heights’ (Variegated Carmel Creeper) is a beautiful spreading shrub that grows to 1 ft. X 6 ft. wide. It has 1 inch long rounded leaves that are yellow lime-green in color with splashes of dark green. The yellow tones are brightest in warmer months and in full sun while the green seems more prevalent in the winter or in heavily shaded plantings. Although most known for its leaf coloration this plant has clusters of pale blue flowers in spring. Plant in full sun to light shade in well drained soil. Water only occasionally.
