Jepson Field Book volume 14 page 136
Kew Herbarium = Ceanothus Gregii Gray = the New Mexican form of C. Cuneatus! = Ceanothus Veitchianus Hook. is near C. thyrsiflorus.  It has leaves not strongly but obscurely 3-nerved, glauscent beneath. If it be a hybrid as said thyrsiflorus is one of the parents! and foliosus, doubtless, the other.  I cannot agree with Mrs. Brandegee that rigidus is a parent. Lobb, Wm. Introduced Ceanothus veitchianus Hook. & floribundus to England, cf. Bot. Mag. t. 4806. Also Whitlaria grandiflora, l.c.t 4813. He was in the Coast Ranges, Los Angeles, and (Sierra Nevada about Summit & Truckee, I believe.)  He collected many Ceanothi spp. which must have involved his being at or near Monterey.  :::::::::  June 1, 1906. = Ceanothus floribundus, the original spm. [specimen] preserved by Hooker when he described the sp. in Bot. Mag. t. 4806. is in Kew Hb. I can see nothing in it but a form of C. dentatus. = C. arboreus Greene, Spms. by Dr. Franceschi, Sta. Cruz Isld., '94, remind me strongly of Mackie's curious unindentified [sic] leaf spms from Stony Creek region.  This is a memory hint - to be looked up when I get home. - Ceanothus spinosus Nutt. as rep. by Brandegee's Santa Barbara, _13 May, 1889 is good typical material.  With the fl. & fr. spm. [flower and fruit specimen] is a vigorous sterile shoot with large dentate leave, and slender almost needle-like spines; this branch is very suggestive
