Isn’t she lovely …..

No 1 in an infinite series

Caryopteris x clandonensis Worcester Gold

Caryopteris x clandonensis ‘Worcester Gold’

A plant that needs a sunny spot, and a free draining soil – which is why its looking pretty wonderful in our garden right now I guess – it’s in a south facing border, in an elevated position in our very free draining soil, so it must be pretty much perfectly located.   The yellow foliage is striking in its own right, but when its topped with its lovely lavender blue flowers, its a cracker!

It only grows to about 1 mt wide and 1.5 mts high so it will fit in even the most modestly sized border , and it has the RHS Award  of Garden Merit, meaning its an all round good do-er.

Have you got one in your garden ?
