Top Plants For Sonoma County
Varies from groundcover to upright or trailing shrubs. Blue flowers in winter attract butterflies and bees.
Shrubs are either low and sprawling or stiff and upright, but named cultivars vary considerably in spread and flower color. Throughout the rainy season, small blossoms in white, pink, or shades of blue light up deep green needle-like foliage. No water is needed in summer. Begin pruning when plants are young to promote bushiness; side branches will not sprout from bare wood. Roots form along all branches in contact with moist ground.
