Recently I had a wonderful case of supposed heart disease cured by ceanothus.
The genus ceanothus is well known from the beautiful C. azureus.
Its ample bright-green, highly varnished leaves and large white flower-clusters make this a very beautiful species of ceanothus.
It led far up the ridge into an open place surrounded by a hedge-like growth of ceanothus chaparral.
A vast amount of wild lilac (ceanothus Velutinus) is found on all the slopes.
Blue myrtle (ceanothus thyrsiflorus) is a California species, sometimes called wild lilac or blue blossoms.
It is our holly, as the ceanothus is our lilac, and the poison-oak is our autumn-red sumac.
There are a good many kinds of ceanothus, and some are a very poor colour.
The azaleas were already budding; the ceanothus getting ready its lilac livery for spring.
