CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

  • Remove faded blooms to keep your Californian Lilac Tree tidy.
  • Cut back new growth to healthy leaf sets while it is actively growing to control the shrub's size. Do not cut branches that are more than 1 inch in diameter.

Care Guide

  • To keep your Ceanothus tree looking at its best, remove any side shoots (laterals) from the trunk of the young tree in the winter. Any weak or competing shoots can also be removed from the top of the tree if needed.
  • By keeping your Californian Lilac in its pot, you can limit its size and keep it manageable. Spring is the best time to repot a potted ceanothus.
  • Repot your standard tree every other year. Use the same pot if you want to keep it at its current size, or up to 5cm (2in) bigger is you would like to grow it on a bit more.
  • Remove your Californian Lilac from its pot and trim off any rotten roots or roots that are winding around the outside of the root ball.
  • Cut away the bottom one-third of the root ball using a pruning saw and replant using fresh potting soil or compost.
