Here is the final result of the quest to breed a truly impressive and reliable Caryopteris with sunny yellow foliage and outstanding garden performance. Lil' Miss Sunshine® is a cross between two other popular PW Caryopteris, 'Sunshine Blue®' and Petite Bleu™, combining the best traits of both. With the great landscape tightness and shiny foliage of Petite Bleu™ added to the brilliant yellow color 'Sunshine Blue', Lil Miss Sunshine® is a spakling mound of color for a full sun garden that intensifies as mid-August rolls around when the brilliant yellow foliage becomes a backdrop for masses of deep amethyst blue flowers. Talk about a WOW package, Lil Miss Sunshine® defined the term and you'll marvel at how it brightens up the landscape or a container garden with its not so subtle coloration. Well drained soil is a must for this drought resistant, easy grow plant. It blooms on new wood so it can take pruning if needed but with its tight form, all you'll really need to do enjoy the explosive color fireworks.
Does well in full sun and well-drained soil, and blooms on new wood.
