#### **Ceanothus × _pronodensis_ 'Blue Wave'**

**MOUNT PLEASANT, _Rhododendron atlanticum_**

This vigorous shrub with soft blue-green leaves makes a lovely, low-care edging, especially in drought-prone areas. Use it in a container, because it can get as large as 6 feet in 2 years. **Zones 5–9**

##### **FOLIAGE**

Pale green, slightly waved, to 3 inches long.

##### **WOODY CROP**

Blue flowers in April.

##### **HARDINESS**

Zone 7–9.

##### **SUBSTITUTES**

'Blue Dream' (or 'Blue Fortune') is another low-maintenance variety that flowers in blue.

##### **VITALIZED VARIETY**

'Blue Wave' is a great garden specimen shrub with blue foliage and blue flowers, and it can be used as a ground cover or edging, but it needs to be mulched in the winter to prevent it from shedding its leaves and getting leggy. It is slow growing and prefers well-drained soil, and it is more sensitive to drought than some other ceanothus, so a good winter mulch should prevent this problem. **'Blue Wave' × _Vaccinium ashei_**.

##### **Foliage and Flowering**

The leaves are bluish green, soft, and quite attractive. Plants are semi-evergreen in colder areas, and turn red to reddish purple in fall. Flowering is in late spring and early summer.

##### **HEALTH BENEFITS**

This low-maintenance shrub is a good source of vitamin C and is a host for the endangered _Hepaticola americana_, a moth in the family Hepialidae, which is endemic to North America. It also has been shown to have some anti-inflammatory properties.

##### **MYTH**

A few people believe that this ceanothus, which is often grown as an ornamental plant, is a hybrid between the common blue flag ( _Ipomoea alba_ ) and the bluebell ( _Mertensia ciliata_ ) and that the combination of the blue flowers and the foliage is actually the flower of the bluebell.

#### **_Cercis canadensis_**

**green cercis**

Hardy, deciduous perennial.

**ALSO KNOWN AS** Japanese cercis, green cercis, cercis canadensis var. _canadensis_ **–zones 4–10**

This deciduous tree grows 8–20 feet tall and has deep green, glossy foliage that is shaped like a pyramid. It makes a nice specimen plant for a woodland area, as it is quite dense and fast growing and is not easily damaged by storms. It flowers in late winter to early spring and can be a good host for the endangered _Coccothrinax fructicola_.

**GROWING NOTES**

Allow to dry out a bit in the summer to keep the foliage looking healthy. Do not plant this as an annual, as the soil should be allowed to dry between growing seasons. Plant in full sun to partial shade. Water well in dry periods. Do not prune back the stems until the leaves begin to fall in late fall.

##### **FOLIAGE**

Deep green, heart-shaped, with a slightly shiny appearance.

##### **WOODY CROP**

White flowers in January–February.

##### **HARDINESS**

Zones 5–
