Other info: Makes a very nice cut flower. This is seed harvested from Caryopteris 'Blue Myth' plants. I think the 'Blue Myth' plants are a bit shorter and more compact than 'Longwood Blue' that I generally harvest from. Also, I think the blue flower color is deeper on this variety. Not sure yet about their hardiness as I planted them in 2009, so I'll see how they winter over this winter.
