If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area check out Annie's holiday sale.
I dare you to leave there with less than 10 plants!
This is my FAVORITE place to purchase plants.
Last year in January I purchased from Annie's a Ray Hartman Ceanothus seedling that was 5 inches tall.
It is now 6 feet tall and 5 feet wide!
No water or fertilizer needed for this plant. It's the ideal California native.
