Caryopteris ‘White Surprise’

Caryopteris x clandonensis ‘White Surprise’ is a sport of Caryopteris ‘Heavenly Blue’. A unique feature is the white variegated leaf − its stability has been proven through repeated propagations and careful selection of propagation material. 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 adorned with rich, lavender-blue whorls of flowers that look great against the variegated foliage.

‘White Surprise’ looks gorgeous in a patio container, making a bold, colorful statement because of its variegation. No burning noted in the EU and some US nurseries report that burning is not an issue.
