We love this climber, which is growing over an archway down the road from us...the flower colour is fantastic...do you know what it is?
Looks like a type of ceanothus (aka california lilac.)
A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
Yes, Ceanothus, but there are quite a few different sorts.
Dordogne and Norfolk. Clay in Dordogne, sandy in Norfolk.
Ace, I'll set looking! Thanks lots! Michael
