Ceanothus Tuxedo

Ceanothus Tuxedo is a breakthrough new variety with deep black foliage and lavender blue flowers. We received this variety from a great Irish plantsman. Tuxedo is a sport from Autumnal Blue and has an open upright habit. The striking foliage of Tuxedo looks great against silver foliage plants like Artemisia and ties in well with other Mediterranean plants. Tuxedo is brand new and should be in garden centers by in spring of 09' Native Sons nursery of Arroyo Grande is one of the first nurseries to offer this exciting new cultivar.
