Bluebeard Dark Knight Brings Color and Fragrance to Your Garden

Bluebeard Dark Knight adds deep blue color and pleasant fragrance to your garden. Compact though prolific, this Bluebeard Dark Knight layers well in larger gardens and creates dramatic solo effects in smaller urban spaces such as rooftop, small yard, or courtyard gardens.  Plant a row to draw attention to a bank of color or plant in a cluster to draw attention to a central focal point. 

Regardless of how and where you choose to place your Bluebeard, you’ll find it attracts attention from butterflies, bees, and other beneficial insects as well, making it an excellent choice for butterfly/pollinator garden designs. 

Blooming in late summer when many other flowering plants have receded, this sturdy deciduous shrub dies back during the winter but returns year after year, making it an excellent long-term investment.  Pruning in early spring promotes blooms and longevity.

Make Bluebeard Dark Knight a welcome addition to your garden and create a summer wildlife attraction.  Order today to promote healthy pollination throughout the season.

* Drought Tolerant
* Small, Mounding shrub
