CARYOPTERIS x ‘Worcester Gold’

Bluebeard –

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Although actually a woody shrub, Bluebeard is usually cut back each spring to 6 inches and treated more like a perennial. Plants form a bushy, upright mound of golden-green leaves, the fragrant bright-blue flowers forming on new wood in late summer and fall. Extremely attractive to butterflies! This outstanding British selection holds interest all season long, for the foliage color alone. Choose a well-drained location in full sun. In mild winter areas, these are also excellent in tubs or mixed containers. Heat tolerant. Fairly drought tolerant, once established.
