Caryopteris x clandonensis, commonly known as Dark Night or Bluebeard, is a small shrub that is widely grown for its attractive blue flowers and aromatic foliage. It is a hybrid between Caryopteris incana and Caryopteris mongholica and was first introduced in the early 1900s.

The Dark Night plant typically grows to a height of 2-3 feet (60-90 cm) and has a similar spread. The leaves are narrow, lance-shaped, and dark green in color, with a slightly rough texture. The plant blooms in late summer to early fall, producing an abundance of fragrant, deep blue flowers that are attractive to bees and butterflies.

Dark Night is a tough and hardy plant that prefers full sun to partial shade and well-draining soil. It is drought-tolerant once established and requires minimal maintenance, making it a popular choice for low-maintenance gardens and landscapes. The plant is also deer-resistant, which makes it a good choice for gardens in areas with deer populations.
