This is Sea Mist. Wondering if any one else has it planted in their garden? Its suppose to be zone 5, so am wondering how it will do over winter.

Sure is pretty. Wonder what the botanical name is?

RE: Sea Mist

Is it caryopteris? Beautiful-I am will be interested to see if it makes it through winter for you. If it does-I need one! lol

RE: Sea Mist

I have a caryopteris too, but mine is sunshine blue or something like that. In Melinda Meyers new book she says that even though they are zone 5 she has never lost one. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

RE: Sea Mist

OOps, my head must be in the sea. Its actually Blue Mist. Caryopteris x clandonesnsis zone 5-9 Full sun, deer resistant, attract butterflies, drought tolerant. Ht 2-3'

Know the bees love it too. :) Hope mine is like Melinda Meyers in that I don't lose it over winter either.
