Caryopteris 'Blue Mist' (Bluebeard)
Showy and fragrant, Caryopteris Blue Mist brings plenty of visual appeal to gardens with its great foliage form and blue flowers. Its blooms are popular with butterfiles and bees, and generally show throughout summer and sometimes into fall, depending on growing conditions. This attractive deciduous shrub is easy to grow, but needs well-draining soil and prefers full sun. It can handle some light shade, but we recommend a minimum of six hours of full sun if possible.
This cultivar grows nicely and can reach about 3' tall x 3' wide. We suggest giving the foliage a gentle rub with your fingers, which will give off a nice aroma. Hardy to -15°F when protected from windchill.
