This shows the typical banding form of the plantings used on this site. The center is the Ceanothus ‘Yankee Point’ more than half of which has died out here. It has done even less well elsewhere. The soil is heavy here and the bank receives regular summer irrigation which the other plants here benefit from. There are two smaller Vine Maple in the vacated middle distance. The grass is Calmagrostis ‘Karl Foerster’ which is rapidly running out of space if the Ceanothus remains. This Ceanothus is normally a very vigorous form and was planted too tightly had they all survived.
