One of the most exciting plants from our recent trials is Caryopteris 'White Surprise'. This amazing white-edged sport of Caryopteris x clandonensis 'Heavenly Blue' was discovered in 2005 by Dutch nurseryman, Jan Jacob Bos. For us, Caryopteris 'White Surprise' makes a 3' tall x 3' wide clump of woody stems, each clothed with finger-shaped, white-edged green leaves. Starting in summer and continuing into fall, the deer-resistant clumps are also adorned with rich, lavender-blue whorls of flowers that look great against the variegated foliage.
