Last week in London's Hyde Park, I came across a lovely shrub that I can't begin to identify. Please let me know what you think! Thanks.

PS - Though the bloom colors are similiar, it's not a lilac. It didn't have much of a scent, and its leaves are much smaller but hardier than those of a lilac.

FYI, I've learned this is a variety of Ceanothus, or California lilac.
