Caryopteris divaricata 'Snow Fairy' (Variegated blue mist shrub)

Caryopteris divaricata 'Snow Fairy'

Variegated blue mist shrub

Snow Fairy's outstanding white-rimmed leaves provide a delicate and full texture in the border all summer. Its habit is compact and well-branched, and it shows beautifully in a nursery pot. In late summer or early fall it is topped with airy blue flowers with long curved stamens, resembling hundreds of floating butterflies. Leaves are slightly aromatic when crushed, but are not as strongly scented as the species.

Caryopteris divaricata 'Snow Fairy' Growing and Maintenance Tips

Caryopteris needs full sun, and a light, well-drained soil. It flowers on new growth, so prune in early spring to ensure heavy flowering. It is somewhat tolerant of drought, but will not survive in saturated soils. Propagate by softwood terminal cuttings. Best used as a specimen, in foundation plantings or in perennial borders for late season color.
