Ceanothus cuneatus (Hook.) Nutt. var. cuneatus
Habit: Plant < 3 m. Stem: generally ascending to spreading; twigs generally gray-brown. Leaf: some occasionally clustered; blade elliptic, oblanceolate, or obovate, tip acute to +- rounded, margin generally entire. Flower: generally white.
Ecology: Sandy to rocky flats, slopes, ridges; Elevation: < 2133 m. Bioregional Distribution: CA-FP (exc ChI), MP; Distribution Outside California: Oregon, northern Baja California. Flowering Time: Feb--May Note: Intergrades with Ceanothus cuneatus var. ramulosus in southern SCoRO, western TR. Were they to be recognized taxonomically, plants from Santa Cruz Mountains with leaf blades 15--27 mm, 9--20 mm wide, wide-elliptic to -obovate, would be assignable to Ceanothus cuneatus var. dubius J.T. Howell; study needed.
Synonyms: Ceanothus cuneatus var. dubius J.T. Howell; Ceanothus cuneatus var. submontanus (Rose) McMinn
