We have been taken with the floriferous herbaceous perennial, Caryopteris divaricata 'Blue Butterflies' in our trials! This vigorous 6' tall, deer-resistant, summer-flowering perennial, selected by Japan's Shinri Wakaiki, is topped from August through October with hundreds of small blue flowers that resemble trichostema (blue curls). Caryopteris 'Blue Butterflies' is a great summer border plant, but well-drained soils are particularly important for good survivability as you move into more northerly zones. In some climates, Caryopteris divaricata can seed excessively, so keep your eyes peeled if it likes your climate too much.
