Ceanothus gloriosus 'Point Reyes'
California Lilac
Deep blue to purple flower clusters appear in spring on this useful low-spreading shrub. The slightly spiny leaves make it less susceptible to deer browsing; this coupled with its salt and wind tolerance make it a perfect choice for coastal gardens.  (Shrub)
