Beyond Midnight has extremely dark, glossy foliage, a compact habit, and deep blue flowers. It adds much-needed color to the late summer landscape and makes a handsome companion with perennials.
Caryopteris demands a sunny spot and very well-drained soil. Caryopteris should be cut back every spring to ensure sturdy, dense growth. You may give it a light trim in late autumn, once it has gone dormant, to remove the old flowers and eliminate possible seed spread. However, do not cut into any thick, woody stems until new growth begins to emerge in spring. Then, cut the whole plant back to just above where large, healthy buds are emerging.
