    Ceanothus/California lilac.   Several forms available.
    Vendée - 20kms from Atlantic coast.

    I think it might be a California lilac. I’m looking on my phone and the image is small on my screen!.
     I have one and it’s also in flower at the moment. It’s a large tree type of ceanothus (not sure if that’s the correct spelling!). If it is what I’m thinking they can be trained against a structure or left as a tree shape.
