Caryopteris 'Lisaura' is a superb introduction from UK nurseryman Peter Catt. This hybrid of Caryopteris x clandonensis backcrossed to Caryopteris incana has turned out to be the most heat-tolerant of the gold-leaf caryopteris we have trialed. The 1.5" or wider leaves emerge golden and age to a chartreuse gold, which allows the plant to maintain its vigor. Our 5-year-old, deer-resistant clump is 3' tall x 4' wide. The clusters of axillary blue-lavender flowers adorn the terminal growth from summer until fall, nicely accenting the golden foliage. In 2007, Caryopteris 'Lisaura' was awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society.
