Hardy Shrubs

Caryopteris 'Hint of Gold'

Blue Mist Shrub
Caryopteris 'Hint of Gold', also known as 'Lisaura', is a selection of Blue Mist Shrub hybridized by Peter Catt of the UK. It has striking deep blue late summer flowers which butterflies adore (and the deer don't!), but it is also remarkable for its aromatic vivid lime yellow foliage. Grows to just 2-3' tall and wide, and loves a sunny spot in well drained soil.
