Plant Families / Caryopteris - Bluebeards
Prized for their late season blooms, Caryopteris (Bluebeards) are small to medium-sized deciduous shrubs with aromatic leaves and small blue or white flowers in compact clusters in late summer and fall. Easy to grow, they provide a long season of interest with their bushy foliage mounds, sometimes beautifully variegated, which remain fresh looking throughout the summer. The profuse blossoms are ravishing in the sunny garden and a real delight to butterflies or hummingbirds. Pest free, deer resistant, they fit any garden settings and are often perfect for small gardens or containers.
