Looking for a versatile, aromatic shrub for your garden? Look no further than Ceanothus velutinus, better known as Red Root, Snowbrush Ceanothus, or Tobacco Brush. This evergreen shrub grows up to 15 ft tall and forms thickets of tangled individuals, making it perfect for creating natural privacy screens or boundaries. The oval leaves are up to 3 inches long and emit a pleasant aroma. But what really makes Ceanothus velutinus unique is the fact that all parts of the plant, when crushed and mixed with water, produce a gentle, effective soap that's great for removing dirt without stripping natural body oils. The flowers also leave behind a pleasant fragrance after use as a body soap. And if you're looking to attract wildlife to your garden, snowbrush ceanothus provides nesting sites for small birds and is an important source of food for various species. So why not add some Red Root to your landscape? You won't be disappointed!
