A spectacular abundance of tiny round buds and vibrant whorled blooms that look fantastic in cut arrangements mantles the fine textured bushy foundation described by compact upright stems and pewter-tinged green foliage with silver undersides. Touted as the best and the bluest of all Caryopteris, ‘Dark Knight’s swank low mounding profile can be staged right up front, tucked next to Zauschneria ‘Wayne’s Silver’ or ushered into smaller gardens.
Size: 2' 0"–3' 0" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
