Ceanothus americanus "New Jersey Tea, Redroot"

About this plant

Used as a tea substitute during the Revolutionary War. Today, it's just a great shrub that will thrive in a sunny, well-drained location! Tiny white flowers cluster on these stalks in late May filling the garden with sweet fragrance and attracting butterflies and hummingbirds from far and wide. In spring and summer, this delightful shrub welcomes Azure butterflies. New Jersey Tea is easy to grow and drought resistant… it's tough enough for rough landscape spots but refined enough to use as specimen or border planting in a more formal setting.
