Pick of the Week: Bluebeard

Caryopteris x clandonensis ‘Dark Night'

(Caryopteris x clandonensis ‘Dark Night’)

This deciduous shrub is a delightful blooming surprise at the end of summer. Different than most bluebeards, ‘Dark Night’ stands upright and is more densely branched than other species.  The deep purplish-blue flowers lie in tufts along the stem, and the dark green foliage is a nice contrast. Another plus, the hummingbirds love it, and it is deer resistant.
