Thumbnail Filmstrip of Ceanothus americanus - New Jersey Tea Images
This compact, dense shrub becomes covered with cylindrical clusters of tiny, fragrant, white flowers. A great plant for attracting butterflies, the dried leaves
were used as a tea substitute in the American Revolutionary War times, hence the common name "New Jersey Tea".
Hummingbirds are regular visitors, eating tiny insects that pollinate the flowers. Easily grown from seed, Ceanothus americanus has thick, woody, red roots that grow deep into the soil and help it withstand droughts.
