Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Kew Blue' - bluebeard

Bluebeard is an attractive shrub with rare late summer/early autumn flowering. In colder zones it is supposed to be a perennial rather than a woody shrub as it may freeze down to the ground.

Should it happen to your one, don't worry - it is suggested to cut it back every spring anyway, the plant will then form new branches which bear enormous number of beautiful blue flowers that attract butterflies. The foliage is silvery green, deciduous. No special soil requirements, it prefers moist places.
