No flowers on my 'ears?

I think the shade might be the issue, try moving to a sunnier spot when time is right.

If that doesn't help try moving g the plant????

 Looks more like this to me but with less flowers, foliage is very distinctive.

You can buy seeds in UK too.

Ivy or Virginia creeper for me Beaus mum, unless that would cause problems with neighbors, then maybe a wire trellis with something like old mans beard or a Montana on.

I kind of agree with you on the arrangement of the flowers nut, too many in a cluster really! But I am going from memory and the sun's been frying my brain lately????!

Ceanothus life span?

I had one do the same in a garden I work in, normally it's winter or should I say prolonged frosts that get them, and pruning out the dead  would usually see them recover, for the next winter to get them. But this one survived the last two winters and decided to give up late spring this year, some of the branches seemed rotten at ground level and pulled away when removing but the main trunk is still in solid til I dig it out proper in winter, but defo ded!

It was more than 10 years old, in a sunny south facing spot and would get a hair cut every time after flowering, the only other factor may have been a blocked drain flooding nearby that could have made it too wet in spring!

From the leaf in the lower of pic 2 I would guess at creeping speedwell, don't think the cosmos looking foliage has anything to do with the close. Pretty flower but a weed in anything but a wild garden/area. Could be wrong though????!
