Bluebeard – Caryopteris x clandonesis

This plant was a real surprise to find in the flower bed.  A few years ago, I planted a caryopteris and it never really did anything.  Earlier this year, I found the plastic tag that comes when you buy a small plant, but found no plant to go with it.  Now I see this strange, but pretty flower and I didn’t know where it came from.

I want to give credit to Jane Lee, who read my blog and offered her assistance finding the name of plants I could not.  Jane is a professional landscaper and has her own blog   Jane, I hope you don’t mind my naming you as my reference.

As I learn more about this plant, I get to look forward to watching it grow and prosper.  It can get a big larger, so I will need to make sure it has plenty of room.
