Looking for a hardy, compact, and dense shrub for your garden? Look no further than Ceanothus americanus, commonly known as New Jersey Tea. Growing to 2-3 feet tall, this shrub boasts fragrant white flowers in late spring that attract butterflies. Its leaves have a fresh wintergreen scent and can be dried for a caffeine-free tea substitute. Best grown in well-drained, sandy or rocky soil and tolerant of drought, this adaptable shrub makes an excellent border plant or ground cover for hard-to-grow areas. Plus, its deep, woody roots make it well-suited to withstand wildfires and even sprout anew after being top-killed. Discover the beauty and resilience of New Jersey Tea for yourself!
