Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Blue Balloon'(PBR)
A compact, deciduous shrub, with an upright, rounded habit. The dark green, toothed foliage has contrasting, silver-green undersides and is topped with dark blue clusters of flowers from late summer. Perfect for positioning along walkways due to its fragrant flowers and foliage.
Keep well watered until firmly established. Plant into any good garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Feed in spring with a good general fertiliser.
Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather.
July - September
