Buy Caryopteris × clandonensis 'Dark Knight' bluebeard: Attractive violet blue flowers

This shrub is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

    • Position: full sun
    • Soil: moderately fertile, light, well-drained soil
    • Rate of growth: average
    • Flowering period: August and September
    • Hardiness: fully hardy

      It is also a magnet for bees and butterflies and is drought-tolerant. Where temperatures fall below -15°C it's best grown against a warm, south or west-facing wall.

    • Garden care: In March prune all of the flowered stems back hard to the permanent framework. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant.

I reviewed the caryopteris before in glowing terms, I have 5 in the garden and was a bit concerned they never flowered as well as expected. This year after a colder than normal winter going down to -10deg looks like they have all died off with only a few of the branches showing any sign of sprouting. Would definitely say they shouldn't be classed as fully hardy, everything else in the garden is growing including 2 rosemary plants in pots that were left out over winter.

busy trying to create a bee friendly garden this summer, planted all the usual hebes, lavenders, sedums etc...decided to try this plant, amazing, I had bees trying to get to the flowers even before the plant had been fully taken out of the box. Very intense colour of blue- has become my favourite plant.
