Beyond Midnight Bluebeard is a drought-tolerant ball of deep blue color. Also called Caryopteris x clandonensis, this shrub packs all the benefits of caryopteris plants but with dark green and glossy foliage, brighter blue flowers and a compact growth. The blooms attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds and they last on the shrub from late summer through early fall. Caryopteris shrubs also love heat and sun, so this is an ideal plant for easy care, bright blue color and to bring pollinators to your garden.

The compact Beyond Midnight Bluebeard grows to only about 2.5 feet high and wide in a nice mounded shape. So, you also can place this stunner in the center of a container where its deep blue blooms complement low-growing white or yellow flowers. Or feature one or more of these shrubs in a garden bed near taller plants. They also work well in borders of garden beds or at the corner of a sidewalk, where they really stand out.

Beyond Midnight Bluebeard Care

If you live in zones 5 through 9, you can enjoy Beyond Midnight Bluebeard as a hardy perennial. Just give the plant full sun and plant it in soil that drains well. Once the shrub matures, you will seldom or never have to water it. Care of this caryopteris is easy. Just prune it each spring down to where new leaves are greening up.

Beyond Midnight Bluebeard Spacing

If planting several Beyond Midnight Bluebeard shrubs in a garden bed or border, be sure to space the plants nearly 3 feet apart from one center to another. This gives them plenty of room to reach their mature size.

Interesting Fact - Caryopteris is also known as blue mist spirea even though it isn't remotely related.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die. Hungry animals, drought, poor soil conditions, over watering, diseases & pests are all good examples of what can cause plants to die. The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability). We may ask for photos for documentation purposes, but we try to make the process as easy as possible.

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
