Plant Finder: about Ceanothus dentatus

Common names

Santa Barbara ceanothus, Cropleaf ceanothus


Ceanothus dentatus (Santa Barbara ceanothus). A densely branched spreading shrub native to the United States. Bears dark green, oblong to elliptic toothed leaves and cymes of small dark blue flowers in late spring.


They are frost to half hardy; in cold areas you should plant against a south or west facing wall. They will need a sheltered site in full sun and light well drained soil. Remember to cut out the dead wood from the evergreens in the spring and trim their side shoots after flowering. Cut back shoots of deciduous species to basal framework in early spring.

Interest and use

Grown for their small but densely clustered, mainly blue flowers. Attractive to bees.
