I look after a nursing home garden with raised beds ( about two and a half feet off the ground) , the bed with the shrubs in is well sheltered , more or less in a court yard. In the middle of all the shrubs and at the front of the display is ceanothus. It does well every year and I just give it a trim when it gets overgrown. Not had any probs with it, don't know whether that is because of its surroundings and the raised bed it is in bunny. It has shrubs behind it and at each side. The raised bed itself is about 10metres long . Sorry about all the detail but trying to explain the location of the shrub and maybe why it does well.
