Friday 9 September 2016
A great late summer flowering compact shrub is Caryopteris × clandonensis ‘Heavenly Blue’ (bluebeard). The arching branches have toothed, grey-green leaves and clusters of small dark blue flowers in the leaf axils in late summer and early autumn. It thrives on a moderately fertile, light, well-drained soil in full sun.
