Ceanothius Genus

Location

This photo was taken in the front of somebody's home in the Hollywood district of Portland, Oregon. Bees also seemed to take a particular fondness to this bush.

Physical Description
According to the Wikipedia page for Ceanothius the leaves are ovate in shape and "have three very prominent parallel veins extending from the leaf base to the outer margins of the leaf tips." The upper surface of the leaves appear to be glossy and have a gummy texture if they are pinched between the thumb and forefinger. The inner root bark of most species is red in color.
The flowers of this particular species are blue, tiny and produced in large, dense clusters. Interestingly, "the seeds of this plant can lie dormant for hundreds of years, and Ceanothus species are typically dependent on forest fires to trigger germination of its seeds." (Wikipedia)
