This one has appeared in one of my garden beds, and what's interesting is that it is new growth on a stem that appears to have been cut back last fall, meaning that I at least thought I knew what it was then, and had decided I wanted to keep it! Not that I'm growing more forgetful---oh, no! Whistling Hilarious!

Okay, looking back through my 'dead and gone' files :whistling:, it seems I had a Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Dark Knight' planted in that general area that I thought had failed to overwinter. I wonder if that is it?? Would be cool if it is!!

Caryopteris lose everything and appear dead. Do the leaves have a frangrance when brushed/crushed? It will be strong if it is.

thanks, Celia. I went out and plucked a bit of a leaf off of it and off of my Caryopteris 'Sterling Silver', and they smelled the same! Hurray! So it is my 'Dark Knight' returned from the dead! Hurray!

Woohoo! I had to remove mine. It was way too close to the front door and the bees were bothering my DH.
