Lil Miss Sunshine™ Bluebeard
Caryopteris x clandonensis
- Mature Size
- 24 - 30 Inches
Sunny yellow leaves contrast with the deep amethyst blue flowers in late summer. Season long color. Compact. Deer resistant.
This compact plant is good for smaller landscapes and beds. Excellent as part of the mixed border or in the perennial bed, it adds a shot of bold color to the late summer garden.
This plant requires very little care. Prune to shape in spring, pruning down to where the new growth is sprouting. In Northern areas it may die completely to the ground. Tip die back is common after cold winters. The plant blooms on the current season's growth so will flower even if cut to the ground in spring. It does require well drained soil. Fertilize with a controlled release fertilizer in spring.
This cross between Petit Bleu and Sunshine Blue delivers shiny yellow foliage all summer long, and has a neat, compact habit. Abundant blue flowers appear in late summer.
