Buckbrush is a native evergreen Ceanothus with clusters of small white flowers that will bring a wide range of native bees to your garden and is also a host plant for multiple butterfly species. This small to medium shrub ranges from the North Willamette Valley down into California and Baja California. It is very rare locally in the North Willamette Valley but is more common further south in Oregon and in California. In addition to excellent pollinator and wildlife benefits, Ceanothus such a buckbrush are very drought tolerant and bacteria that colonize their roots are able to pull nitrogen from the atmosphere as plant food.
