|Caryopteris xclandonensis 'Blue Mist'
Height: 2-4' Spread: 3-4' Habit/Form: Rounded Growth Rate: Medium to fast Zone: 5-9
Cultural Requirements: Thrives in full sun to light shade in a loose, loamy, well-drained soil. Considered winter-sensitive, plants should be cut back in early spring to remove dead twigs and promote vigorous new shoots, and flowering on new growth in late summer.
Ornamental Characteristics: This almost herbaceous shrub adds a soft hue to the garden with its soft blue-gray foliage and silvery undersides. The lightly scented clusters of lovely bright blue flowers arise from the axils of the stem in August and September. Fall color is a buttery yellow.
Uses in the Landscape: Ideal in mass, a perennial border, or as filler for late season blooms.
