Caryopteris ‘Hint of Gold’ is a unique medium-sized deciduous shrub, known for its beautiful blue flowers and lime-green foliage. It is an easy to grow plant, ideally used for low hedging against a fence, wall side border or as shrub border. The vibrant colours of its flowers attract butterflies and bees.
The Hint of Gold blooms fluffy clusters of rich blue flowers from the late summer into autumn. The golden leaves mature into lime-green and acts as a striking back drop to the vivid blue flowers. These flowering shrubs need low maintenance, yet they still manage to grow tough and hardy.
They can tolerate moderate drought and thrive in acidic soil that is drained appropriately. They like to grow in full sunlight where the scent of their flowers is strong.
The rounded blue clusters of Caryopteris Hint of Gold bear a resemblance to clouds of blue smoke, hence also called Blue Mist or simply Blue Beard.
Caryopteris Hint of Gold are perfect for natural landscape gardens. Their distinctive golden foliage is what sets them apart from other Blue Beard plants. Add them around the base of other taller shrubs. Prune the faded flowers to encourage new blooms before spring.
Their evergreen foliage will keep your garden lively even in the months of winter.
