...you might like this one, it's Sambucus plumosa Aurea, a form of Elder. I think the leaf colour would contrast with your blue flowering Ceanothus, and this plant will grow just about anywhere... Red berries too... and fine foliage. Deciduous...
Or Pysocarpus Diablo. The purple leaves would look beautiful with the Blue flowers of the Ceanothus.
yes even brown looks good i saw some of it and it looks good..
As long as you keep it pruned to the right shape, the silver green leaves of eleagnus ebingii might be a good idea behind the blue of the ceanothus. It is a strong plant and evergreen. It really comes into its own in mid winter when the tiny and insignificant white flowers send out a delicious scent - just when it`s needed.
Hi Verdun. I do like the Physocarpus but I think I prefer the colour of Sambucus or the dark leaved Hazels.
Buddleia will attract butterflies and will get to 8'.
Gooseberry can also get to 8' and will attract birds and give you a pie.
