Description

Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Minigold'

Height: 3 feet
Spread: 3 feet
Sunlight: full sun
Hardiness Zone: 5a
Other Names: Bluebeard, Blue Spirea

Description:
A compact, airy shrub with sky-blue flowers held over attractive, chartreuse-green leaves that become more green in summer; foliage is fragrant when crushed; a true magnet for pollinators in the garden.

Ornamental Features:
Beekeeper™ Caryopteris features dainty cymes of sky blue flowers along the branches from mid to late summer. The flowers are excellent for cutting. It has attractive grayish green-variegated chartreuse foliage with hints of gold which emerges yellow in spring. The fragrant oval leaves are highly ornamental but do not develop any appreciable fall color.

Landscape Attributes:
Beekeeper™ Caryopteris is an open multi-stemmed deciduous shrub with an upright spreading habit of growth. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other landscape plants with less refined foliage.

Planting & Growing:
Beekeeper™ Caryopteris will grow to be about 3 feet tall at maturity, with a spread of 3 feet. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a medium rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.This shrub should only be grown in full sunlight. It does best in average to evenly moist conditions, but will not tolerate standing water. To help this plant achive its best flowering performance, periodically apply a flower-boosting fertilizer from early spring through into the active growing season. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is somewhat tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid. Beekeeper™ Caryopteris makes a fine choice for the outdoor landscape, but it is also well-suited for use in outdoor pots and containers. With its upright habit of growth, it is best suited for use as a 'thriller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the center of the pot, surrounded by smaller plants and those that spill over the edges. It is even sizeable enough that it can be grown alone in a suitable container. Note that when grown in a container, it may not perform exactly as indicated on the tag - this is to be expected. Also note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
