So Many Blooms, It’s Like a Ball of Blue!

Beyond Midnight Bluebeard is a lovely shrub, with a rounded nature and deep green coloring. However its true value is seen as the season progresses. Long stems shoot up above the glossy, dark-green foliage in late summer, clothed in a multitude of delicate, deep-blue blossoms. The shrub is so populated with the long wands of dark blue color that it has the effect of turning the vibrant green shrub into a veritable "ball of blue" in the landscape.

The remarkable flowers last into fall, providing a lively show at a time when other plants are fading. Beyond Midnight isn't just a pretty face however. It's also beloved by butterflies, bees and hummingbirds who are sure to appreciate its presence in your yard, and the late season nourishment it provides.

Your Beyond Midnight Bluebeard, aryopteris x clandonensis 'CT-9-12', is a deciduous, ornamental shrub with a compact form and dense nature.
