Rocky Knoll Farm
Caryopteris 'Hint of Gold' (Bluebeard)
Vivid bright golden green foliage with violet-blue "bearded" blossoms that show themselves in summer and into fall. This splendid shrub is loved by bees and hummingbirds, yet is deer and rabbit tolerant. It can be planted in so many configurations: borders, beds, patios, planters, slopes, rock gardens, coastal areas, and others, as long as it has well-draining soil and plenty of sun. It can grow to about 3' tall and 3' wide and can even be used for colorful ground cover. Hardy to -10°F when protected from windchill.
