Bluebeard - Grand Bleu™
Bluebeard - Grand Bleu™, Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Grand Bleu', is a low-mounded, deciduous shrub that is valued for its aromatic foliage and late summer flowers, which are said to resemble clouds of blue smoke or mist. It works well in large containers or in the landscape. This woody perennial forms a uniform, rounded mound of glossy, deep green foliage that is topped by deep intense blue-purple flowers from midsummer until the first frost. It is especially valuable because it looks its best when many other perennials are done for the season! Grand Bleu Bluebeard grows best in full sun and loose, loamy, well-drained soil. It is very tolerant of heat and drought and will not survive in wet, soggy soil. Its flowers are very attractive to butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. Use in perennial borders, shrub borders, or Grand Blue is very effective in large groups or massed. If you need a low hedge, this is the shrub for you!
