Product Information

Caryopteris ‘Heavenly Blue’, commonly known as Bluebeard, is a neat and compact deciduous shrub with arching branches which carry small, intense blue flowers and aromatic grey-green foliage.

A Royal Horticultural Society ‘Plant for Pollinators’, caryopteris is a magnet for bees, butterflies and a host of other pollinating insects, attracted by the dense clusters of dainty flowers in August and September.

Easy to grow and drought tolerant, ‘Heavenly Blue’ is happy in a pot or in the ground in a sheltered location and is the ideal size for the middle of the border, and planted amongst orange and yellow flowering plants, the brightness of its blue flowers really makes the colours stand out.

Supplied as an established plant in a 9cm pot, ready to plant. Reaching a height and spread of 1m (3ft).

Top Tips

  • A good choice if you have a coastal climate.

Care Information

Planting Advise

  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot then refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you’re planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

Pruning

  • Prune in early to mid-spring when growth is beginning.
  • Cut flowered stems back hard, as caryopteris flowers on new growth.
  • After pruning, apply a generous layer of well-rotted compost to the base of the plant.
