It's lovely. I just planted my first caryopteris this summer. It's 'Sunshine Blue II.' Sure hoping it'll turn out as wonderful as yours.

Thanks! Oddly enough, as based on your photo, it replaced a largely orange bloomer (scotch broom 'lena'). Now you have me thinking about buying 'Prince of Orange' to perch in front of it Smiling My crocosmia -- 'Emberglow' -- blooms in mid-summer. It's lovely but has yet to really take off. Admittedly, overcrowding could be an issue.

I also will admit that bed is over crowded as well.. orange planted late .. because I just couldn't get to it.. so blooming at the same time is a happy accident Thumbs up

A happy accident indeed! Here I was hoping it was a later bloomer so that the timing worked so well. Green Grin! But mystery solved. Still, even as Irish as I am, I do love your prince of orange. My caryopteris has taken well and is happily blooming. Thumbs up Now it's just a matter of waiting out the years to let it come to size.
