Lil Miss Sunshine® Bluebeard
Bright Blooms and Fantastic Foliage!
It’s always nice when you don’t have to choose between striking foliage and luscious blooms. Lil Miss Sunshine Bluebeard (‘Janice’ PP 22,160) has both! A Proven Winners Color Choice selection, this new caryopteris variety is a garden stunner for sure.
Even though Lil Miss Sunshine is shaped like a classic bluebeard, the foliage is a shocking yellow/green that commands attention from across the yard and makes the sky blue blossoms practically crackle. If you want to make a garden statement, plant these in mass in your perennial beds and watch the traffic stop. On top of the color show, your summer garden will be set in motion by the butterflies and bees that can’t get enough of the flowers.
The leaves are aromatic making Lil Miss Sunshine deer resistant. They are also drought tolerant and will come back year after year. (In cold winter zones they die to the ground. In warm winter areas they retain their top growth like a shrub. Either way, a prune to the ground in spring will give you a shock of new growth every year.)
Plant this beauty with deep scarlets and purples or in front of dark green evergreens for a truly great look. Let Lil Miss Sunshine Bluebeard shine in your garden this year. You’ll be glad you did.
