California lilac

Posted: 23/04/2016 at 18:12

I cut one right back, it was OK for a bit but snuffed it this year. I've got a nice photo of velvet shank (fungus) growing on it. One of the gardens I used to work in had some tightly clipped ceanothus, it had been there for ages, looked healthy but not very floriferous  

ID please

Good idea, see whether you like it first

Sounds like death

California lilacs. Ceanothus? If so, they're relatively short lived.

Make sure it is one of the berrying ones Hazel. That one called Viburnum opulus 'Sterile' is just what is says, sterile, no berries. Now called 'Roseum' for some reason that escapes me. I don't think that one is worth the space it takes.
