some flower in autumn, some are deciduous, this one is evergreen. Could be one of several cultivars that flower at this time of year - hard to tell whether those flowers are powder blue or dark blue from the photo, but they look paleish blue, so might be C. 'Cascade'. Alternatively, C. concha or 'Trewithin Blue'

It is a ceanothus...You can take cuttings Leigh, but I don't find that they take readily. You would take the cuttings in late Summer early Autumn.

Here we go..No harm trying, this link may help.
