Beyond Midnight has extremely dark, glossy foliage, a compact habit, and deep blue late summer flowers. It adds much-needed color to the late summer landscape and makes a handsome companion with perennials. It is deer-resistant and attracts bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds.

Care: It requires well-drained soil to prevent root rot. Fertilize with Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food in spring and mid-summer.

Pruning: Caryopteris should be cut back every spring to ensure sturdy, dense growth. You may give it a light trim in late autumn, once it has gone dormant, to remove the old flowers and eliminate possible seed spread. However, do not cut into any thick, woody stems until new growth begins to emerge in spring.

      I LOVE Caryopteris!

      My Beyond Midnight Caryopteris came in full bloom and ready to plant. While unpacking it, a honeybee found it within minutes! I know (as I have other varieties) that this will feed pollinators from late summer, well until cold weather! It's quite a treat, especially as other things are fading. This will give autumn interest and extend the blooming season!
