Stopping to smell the flowers

By From page A15 | November 18, 2012

Bluebeard (Caryopteris x clandonensis) draws butterflies and wild bees to pollinate a garden, an added benefit of choosing low shrubs for low water use — they can also encourage beneficial insects. This low shrub has grey-green foliage and vivid blue flowers in waves of bloom through the summer. It combines well with rosemary, salvia, and lavender.
