Ideal for a scented garden the golden leaves of this blue spirea variety emit a pleasant almost sage-like fragrance and add a look of freshness to the garden bed.

Every summer from August your shrub shows off a host of blue-mauve spirea-like flowers with long blue anthers that go beautifully with the golden fresh-looking leaves. A magnet to bees and butterflies Hint of Gold adds movement to your garden, bringing it to life.

Plant by blue delphiniums that enhance the show of the blue flowers of your Caryopteris Hint of Gold. The tall delphiniums and shorter Hint of Gold shrub is particularly pleasing to the eye on account of their different heights.

Useful Tip:

Your plant performs best when planted in partial shade; the golden leaves are sensitive to intense sun so appreciate dappled sunlight only. Be sure to plant in moist compost added to the existing soil to improve the root environment for healthier and better performing plants.
