There are few true blues in the world of flowers, but the blooms on a Blue Mist Shrub come very close. When they open in late summer, every honeybee in town knows about it! Caryopteris, a small shrub or woody perennial, forms a neat, low mounding shrubby perennial. Bees and butterflies love it. The flowers give Caryopteris it’s common name of Blue Mist. They are clustered in panicles above the foliage, as little feathery puffs over a long period in late summer and fall. Deer-resistant.
Full sun and soil that drains well. Doesn't like "wet feet". It is extremely drought tolerant and pest free.
Grows to 2 ft high. Blooms on new wood– prune back in early spring. Deciduous.
