I want to grow a ceanothus in a pot which is around 1m high and 50cm diameter.
It is at front of house so get lots of sun but equally some rain and frost (although protected from wind).

I have seen Ceanothus grown as single trunk tree with leaf/flower area pruned to a neat shape and rather fancy this style - which variety should I use?

I also would explore option of a climbing ceanothus in teh alternative.



I don't know what part of the UK you're in - if the balmy west or somewhere sheltered in the south, it might be worth a try, but Ceanothus can keel over in a bad winter even in the ground, so don't make great container subjects, where they're even more vulnerable to cold.

you could if you can take the bottem out of the pot so it looks like its growing in a pot but is infact growing in the ground and give it some support if its near awall .
