Ceanothus Plants

Q.Ceanothus on a slope.

Zone Nipomo, CA 93444 | MQ329 added on June 27, 2017 | Answered

One side of our house has a slope that has been fully covered with Ceanothus for the past 5 years.
One side is partially in the shade and seems fuller and greener (image # 0703).
The side more exposed to the sun seems to be less full and has more yellow leaves, especially in during the summer (images # 0701 and 0702).
What do I need to do to change that for the better, greener all over.

Thank you for your time.

It is just most likely that the higher level of sun sort of blanches that section of the ceanothus. Sunlight is something we have very little control of in these circumstances. You could try a nitrogen fertilizer such as blood meal to green up the lighter side. This article may help
