Bluebeard - Beyond Midnight®

Caryopteris x clandonensis 'CT-9-12'

Caryopteris is easy to grow and once established is largely trouble free. Very dark green foliage, with long-lasting deep blue blooms in late summer and well into autumn, Beyond Midnight is a stunning addition to your perennial beds. Useful as an edging, or in pollinator gardens, bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds are attracted to this compact Bluebeard. As an added bonus, deer and rabbits will stay away. Choose a sunny spot and plant in well-drained soil. Caryopteris can tolerate heat and a bit of drought. Caryopteris should be cut back hard, early each spring, when new growth begins to emerge on the stems.

Good drainage is essential. The combination of wet soil and cold temperatures is particularly detrimental.

Caryopteris should be cut back hard each early spring, as soon as the new growth has begun to emerge on the stems.

Caryopteris requires sunny sites and well-drained, even dry, soils. It should be treated much like buddleia in terms of pruning and siting.
