Description :

What class!

Native to the hot, dry hills of the Himalayas and south-east Asia, the Caryopteris genus comprises many shrubs that are a useful addition to an ornamental garden for late summer and autumn flowering.

Caryopteris x Clandonensis 'Hint of Gold' has a beautiful layered flowering of purple-blue clusters similar to those of the famous Verbena bonariensis.

In the spring its beautiful aromatic foliage, smelling of aniseed with a hint of lavender, is lemon yellow. And come the summer it has turned chartreuse yellow. A tinge more green to contrast with with purple-blue flowers. What class!

In the garden we obviously like to combine it with the purple Aster 'Purple Dome'and the green Echinacea 'Green Jewel'.

Caryopteris x Clandonensis 'Hint of Golf' belongs to the same family as purpletop or Argentinian vervain (Verbenaceae) and has the same growing requirements!

Grow in the sun or slight shade in averagely fertile, light and well-drained soil. In heavy, clay soil grow on a mound to improve drainage.

Maintenance: cut back to 10/15 cm after flowering and apply a protective mulch of dried leaves.

Synonym: Caryopteris x Clandonensis 'Lisaura'
