Maintenance Notes:

Caryopteris demands a sunny spot and very well-drained soil. Wet soils, particularly those that remain soggy during periods of cold weather, will cause root rot. For this reason, we recommend early season planting of caryopteris in zones 5 and 6.

Caryopteris should be cut back every spring to ensure sturdy, dense growth. You may give it a light trim in late autumn, once it has gone dormant, to remove the old flowers and eliminate possible seed spread. However, do not cut into any thick, woody stems until new growth begins to emerge in spring. Then, cut the whole plant back to just above where large, healthy buds are emerging.

Fun Facts: 

Caryopteris is also known as bluebeard or blue mist spirea - but it's not a spirea at all. In fact, they're not even remotely related.
