Autumn flowering ceanothus?

FireFire Posts: 18,983
I'm about to buy an autumn flowering bush and wondering about them. I have never seen one flower in that season. Are they as floriferous? Worth it?  The thought of one fully flowering in spring and one opposite in autumn is quite wonderful.

    Is that a deciduous one?

    Autumnal Blue flowers both in Spring and Autumn, when it's established... it doesn't always do that in the first year.. but when it gets going it's rather good..

    'Gloire de Versailles' which is semi evergreen flowers from June to very late in the year, non stop..

    I have Autumnal Blue precisely for its blue flowers later in the year. It can get quite big and sprawly so needs to be pruned regularly - which I don't do very often.
