Caryopteris 'Dark Knight'

In late summer and early fall, when few other shrubs are in bloom, Caryopteris ‘Dark Knight’ is a showy bloomer. Its deep blue to lavender flowers are very interesting against the gray-green foliage.  Beautiful in front of low walls, in mass groupings, as a hedge, or even as a specimen plant, it has a tidy, upright growth habit. It is small enough for a patio garden. Grows to approximately 3’ x 5’.

Hardiness zones 5-9 with a moderate growth rate. It needs part shade to full sun and is fairly low maintenance. Mildly fragrant, attracts butterflies. Avoid heavy wet clay soils. Blooms on new growth, so cut back in early spring.

Grown in a 3 gallon container.
