New Jersey Tea

Ceanothus americanus

Busting myth #1: New Jersey Tea (Ceanothus americanus) is a native to southern Canada that sends roots deep into the soil giving it the reputation for being drought tolerant. A compact shrub growing only to about 3 feet in height, it produces clusters of fragrant white flowers in late spring. The photo was taken in late fall.
