Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Kew Blue' is a striking garden plant that offers a burst of colour to any outdoor space. This woody, deciduous shrub is a popular choice for gardeners thanks to its vibrant blue blooms, which last from late summer to early autumn. The plant typically grows to a height of around 1 metre (3 feet) and a spread of 1.2 metres (4 feet), making it a medium-sized addition to a planting scheme.

The blue flowers of Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Kew Blue' are made up of tiny, tubular blooms that cluster together to form spikes up to 10cm (4 inches) long. These spikes rise above the foliage of the plant, which is a grey-green colour and often fragrant. The foliage is lance-shaped and has fine hairs that give it a slightly fuzzy appearance.

Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Kew Blue' is a versatile plant that can be used in a variety of different settings. It looks particularly effective when planted in borders with other shrubs and perennials, where its vibrant blue blooms can add interest and contrast. The plant is also suitable for use in cottage gardens, where its relaxed, informal form works well.

When it comes to planting, Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Kew Blue' prefers full sun and well-drained soil. It is a relatively low-maintenance plant that requires only occasional pruning to keep it looking its best. The plant is also drought-tolerant once established and can withstand periods of dry weather without suffering.

Overall, Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Kew Blue' is a beautiful and easy-to-care-for plant that adds a splash of colour to any garden. Its vibrant blue flowers, fragrant foliage, and ability to thrive in a range of settings make it a popular choice for gardeners of all levels of experience.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
