Finally, a hardy Ceanothus with real pink flowers! Marie Rose has numerous panicles of rich pink flowers that appear in mid-summer and again in early fall, followed by attractive red seed capsules. It is an upright, compact plant with glossy foliage and purple stems. An extremely drought-tolerant plant that will struggle in poorly drained or frequently irrigated soils. Adored by butterflies.

Ceanothus 'Minmarose'

  • I have had this plant for several years. It did poorly the first three years, so I moved it to a more open, well drained location, and in the past couple of years it has been much happier. It has started to develop an actual shape, and this year it bloomed for the first time. The flowers are delicate, with a wonderful fragrance, and the small berries that have developed are 'cute'. It is almost 30 inches high, and about as wide at the top. It is most attractive if it is not competing with other plants of similar size -- it would be lost in a bed of shrubs, but looks nice surrounded by lower growing perennials, such as salvia, or a ground cover. I would recommend it for that use.

    Satisfactory Average performance, met expectations but not outstanding.
