Rhamnaceae, Ceanothus thyrsiflorus (?) – Berkeley, CA

I took these photos this weekend along a fence in Berkeley, I think its Ceanothus thyrsiflorus, but could very well be wrong or not specific enough (cultivar?).

Its nearing the end of January, unseasonably hot and dry, and these are in full bloom.

Here is a close up of the flower and leaf…

    1. I’m becoming very interested in the Ceanothus genus. It has a very long and interesting ethnobotanical and horticultural history. The flowers smell incredible. I’ll put together an overview of some of notable factoids and post it soon.
