Caryopteris × clandonensis Blue Empire™ 'Elst01'

Bluebeard Spirea

Big, blue + beautiful
Obedient low growing habit
Long wands of BIGGER deep blue flowers
Excellent cut flower

According to Plantipp, the motto of this stunning, new Caryopteris is big, blue & beautiful! We found that to be true in our own trial gardens here at North Creek. Its powdery grey-green foliage is the perfect skirting to present the long wands of stacked deep blue flowers. The flowers are bigger than other Caryopteris that we have trialed with long wands lasting weeks on end. It is a wonderful addition to the landscape or container garden + excellent for cut flowers. Superior low growing habit.
