Caryopteris Beyond Midnight® Description

Get color when you need it most with Beyond Midnight® bluebeard (Caryopteris x clandonensis). Growing as a tidy mound of deep green foliage all season, it explodes with bright purple-blue flowers in late summer through fall. Attracts tons of pollinators! Its late bloom time makes it an outstanding companion to panicle hydrangeas or any sun-loving perennials. Thrives in hot sun, dry soils, and is deer resistant, making it a truly rewarding and easy-care plant. Beyond Midnight was selected by Proven Winners for better color and winter survival than other bluebeards.

Special features: Fall interest, Deer resistant, Drought tolerant, Attracts pollinators

Soil:  Bluebeard requires well-drained, even dry, soils. Thrives in the same kind of spots as butterfly bush. 
Light: Full sun (6+ hrs/day).
Water:  Low to moderate – bluebeard does not tolerate wet soil or overwatering
Space:  Min. 2.5' apart
Fertilizing:  Little fertilizer is needed.
Winterizing:  Leave plant intact over winter (you can give it a light trim to remove the seedheads if desired). Do not apply a thick layer of mulch in the winter, as it requires dry conditions, particularly during cold weather.
Maintenance:  Wait until new growth begins to emerge in spring to prune. Cut back to just above where large, healthy buds are emerging. Don't be afraid to cut back quite hard, leaving stubs of just a few inches tall – that keeps the plant dense and compact.
