Product Information

Caryopteris are compact deciduous shrubs that boast a profusion of delicate flowers in clusters along arching branches in bright shades or lavender and blue.

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, caryopteris 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 the foliage provides a wonderful colour contrast for surrounding planting.

Supplied as a pair of established plants in 9cm pots, ready to plant. Reaching a height and spread of 1m (3ft), including:

Caryopteris ‘Heavenly Blue’ - commonly known as Bluebeard, dazzles with its amazingly intense blue flowers and aromatic grey-green foliage.

Caryopteris ‘Worcester Gold’ - has masses of small lavender-blue flowers. However, it’s the foliage that make this plant special, with its leaves in shades of yellow, ‘Worcester Gold’ really stands out from other plants.

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.
