I planted five of these in Strawberry, AZ, which gets snow and down to -8 in winter at times. They were beautiful plants that took very little care once established. We had droughts and they were drought tolerant. Will definitely try these again in Nevada.
Longwood Blue Caryopteris
Great plant to grow in Georgia, north of Atlanta. Never sick or sorry, tolerated the dry weather and red clay. Beautiful blue added to the landscape.
