Product information "Bluebeard 'Summer Sorbet'®"

Not only the flowers offer a beautiful sight with the bluebeard 'Summer Sorbet', but also the yellow-green, variegated foliage is a real eye-catcher. As with all bluebeards, the leaves have an herb-like, aromatic fragrance. Especially the interplay of the variegated leaves with the light blue flowers, which decorate the ornamental shrub from the end of August until the October, is what makes this variety something special in the garden.
Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Summer Sorbet' needs a sunny, rather dry, sheltered position with a good soil temperature.
Winter protection is recommended for this variety; in autumn, a thick layer of foliage can be applied over the roots of the plant and at the starting point of the shoots. Of course, the shoots can also be covered with brushwood, but this is not absolutely necessary. By cutting back the plant strongly in the spring, the flower formation is strengthened and the frozen back shoots are removed. Pruning can be done to a height of 15 cm. In order to achieve a full bloom, it is advised not to apply to much fertiliser, as this reduces the plant’s ability to bloom.
This shrub reaches a height of 90 cm in elliptical form, which makes it suitable not only as a solitary shrub, but also for area plantings and in containers and beds. It is even possible to grow as a small hedge.
