Bearded flower - flowers and greens that make the real life of your garden
The striking flowers of Caryopteris clandonensis Kew Blue pull out all the stops to attract butterflies, bees and bumblebees. That's logical, with so many flowers. Without butterflies and other insects there is no pollination. If you choose a natural and diverse garden, you get the chance of visits from busy bees while enjoying a beautiful garden! Perennials like the blue bearded flower contribute to this. Where there is a lot of buzzing and fluttering, nature is doing well. So the more attractive you make your garden, the more life it will attract and the more you will enjoy all the natural beauty.
Beautiful colours, beautiful foliage that's what a bearded flower shrub is
Caryopteris clandonensis Kew Blue, small summer-green shrub, up to 90cm tall, bushy upright, very richly flowering with sweet-scented, dark blue, cup-like flowers. But the grey-green, lanceolate leaves are also aromatic and smell of mint when touched or rubbed. The greenery and the extended flowering time from August to October make this Caryopteris a special shrub for the mixed border or as a border planting in your garden, and the bearded flowers are particularly drought-tolerant. In addition, the Caryopteris is hardy and can be combined with many other perennials and shrubs
