Winter blooms on the Ray Hartman Ceanothus


It's so nice to see the Ray Hartman ceanothus shrub producing blossoms throughout the winter.

When we lived at a lower elevation in Alameda County, our Ray Hartman ceanothus didn't bloom year-round, only from Spring through Fall.

This ceanothus shrub has been blooming throughout the year, and gradually producing more and more blossoms.

It is providing nectar for the pollinators, including hummingbirds and occasional bees.

And the brown-eyed bushtits seem to be finding spiders and ants to eat on the leaves and branches, because they visit the shrub daily.
