Dreamy colour

Heavenly blue. It is easy to see how the Caryopteris clandonensis 'Heavenly Blue' got its name! There are countless tiny blue-purple flowers on one shoot. They look like they are floating! The 'Heavenly Blue' also attracts bees and butterflies. You can also use as a cut flower in a vase. The plant is winter-hardy. The flowers bloom from the end of summer to the beginning of autumn.
If necessary, cut branches off at the base in spring. Place the plant in full sun. The plant only needs water during dry periods.

Planting

Do make sure that the Caryopteris clandonensis root ball is soaked well prior to planting. Dig a wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Plant your Bluebeard at the correct depth - the top of the root ball should come to just below soil level. Fill the hole with soil, heel well in and water immediately. Bluebeard will thrive in a permeable, fertile soil in the garden. Plant the bush in a sunny spot.

Bluebeard and other plants

Bluebeard will thrive in a sunny spot in fairly dry soil. Will look lovely in a sunny border together with other late summer and autumn flowering plants like butterfly weed (Asclepias tuberosa) and dahlias. Bluebeard is also a great plant for a large planter on the patio or decking - perhaps together with a deliciously scented jasmine (Jasminium officinale).
 

Care

Cut all young Caryopteris twigs hard back in the spring. Bluebeards can suffer from frost damage, during a severe frost protect your Caryopteris with a mulch of leaf litter, or straw. The bush soon regrows from the roots. Because the beard flower flowers on year-old wood, after a spring pruning it will still flower that year. Dead twigs and branches should be cut out entirely in the spring.
A too marshy position will not be tolerated, especially in the winter. If you are growing your Caryopteris clandonensis in a pretty planter you must ensure good drainage at all times.
 
 
 

Extra

These flowers attract lots of insects which is why bluebeard is a must for growing in a natural garden. The flowers rather resemble the better known spirea and is sometimes actually called blue spirea.
