Spring is the most colourful season on the rear terraces: Ceanothus impressus (centre) , Acacia verticillata (top right) , Yucca recurvifolia (below Acacia), Euphorbia mellifera (just visible flowering middle right), Trachycarpus fortunei (bottom right) and a variegated Phormium 'Sundowner' (bottom left). Ceanothus impressus from Califirnia is undoubtedly the most impressive of all late spring flowering shrubs - the flowers are a dramatic deep royal blue and cover the whole bush. Like all Ceanothus species it requires a warm sunny position and a well-drained acid soil.
