June brings a jumble of all types of flowers in the border. Some are sweetly scented whilst others are bright, hardy and ever persistent in their beauty. This particular bush is about seven years old and clipped back each Autumn as I suspect it would take over a vast space without yearly maintenance.
Ceanothus is a delightful shrub with its small to medium dark green leaves that become bejewelled with Ceylon blue sapphire flowers at this time of year. It provides a home for the garden spider and food for bees, butterflies and a multitude of the smaller garden beetles.
