Blue Mist Caryopteris (also commonly called blue spirea or bluebeard) is a low-mounded, deciduous shrub that is valued for its aromatic foliage and late summer flowers which are said to resemble clouds of blue smoke or mist. The plants typically produce about 18-30 inches of growth per year, so total shrub height (usually from 2-3′) depends in large part upon the extent of winter dieback and/or the annual spring pruning. ‘Longwood blue’ is a taller cultivar which may reach a height of 4′. It features a profuse, shrub-covering bloom of fragrant, violet-blue flowers from late summer into fall and lance-shaped, silvery-gray leaves (to 1.5 inches long). Foliage is aromatic when brushed with a hand. Flowers are very attractive to butterflies, bees and other beneficial insects. A selection from Longwood Gardens in Pennsylvania. ::Easily grown in average, well-drained soil in full sun. Prefers loose loams. Tolerates some drought. Intolerant of wet, poorly-drained soils. Roots are winter hardy to USDA Zone 5, but top growth is hardy to USDA Zone 7. Consequently, plants are generally grown as shrubby, soft-wooded perennials north of USDA Zone 7 by pruning stems back hard each year in early spring. Regardless of pruning intentions, stems will often die to the ground in the cold winters of Zones 5 and 6, with roots surviving to push up new stems in spring. Even in warm winter climates where the stems usually survive winter, gardeners frequently still prune the plants back hard in early spring to promote vigorous new stem growth. Flowering is unaffected by spring pruning because plants bloom on new growth. ::The plant you will receive is growing in a 4″ pot, well rooted and about 8″ tall.
Commonly called Beardtongue, Penstemon is a large native genus found over large areas of the US and Canada, especially in drier locations. It contains a wealth of flower colors and sizes, plant heights, and growth habits. :’Husker Red’ is a white-flowered, red-foliaged form of P. digitalis that was selected and introduced in 1983 by Dr. Dale Lindgren, University of Nebraska. It is a versatile garden perennial, valuable as a specimen, or as a cut flower. When plants are well established, height averages about 30 inches, with as many as 50 white flowers on each of 20 or more open, airy, flower stalks during July and August. :Perhaps ‘Husker Red’s’ most valuable attribute is the rich, bronze-red foliage which provides striking contrast with the masses of white flowers. ::’Husker Red’ prefers well-drained soils that are slightly acidic. Soils that are well drained during the winter help to extend its life. Plants thrive in full sun to light shade.

Brumas, who was named after the first polar bear to be born at London Zoo, went out for a walk on Friday near his home in Bratton Clovelly. But when he returned later, his white fur had turned pink, astonishing owners Philip and Joan Worth. The couple took the cat to their vet in Launceston, Cornwall, who said he was in good health despite his new colour. ‘Barbie pink’ Philip and Joan Worth said they were shocked when Brumas returned home. Mrs Worth said: “He was pink – Barbie pink. His head, ears and right down his body, although not underneath, had gone a quite brilliant pink. “We went to the vet on Saturday, but they couldn’t find any reason for it, although they decided it wasn’t toxic, which was what I was worried about.” The couple, who adopted Brumas after he was found on Dartmoor and taken in by the Cats Protection League, have five other cats but none of them has been affected in the same way. ::Mrs Worth added: “He seems fine, he’s eating well and the other cats aren’t terribly bothered.”
