Great Plant Picks - The bright sunny yellow leaves make this late-summer blooming deciduous shrub a true show stopper. SUNSHINE BLUE has an upright and compact shape and its bright yellow foliage adds multi-season color to the garden. The strong branches are not floppy and hold the late summer amethyst blue flowers in attractive tufts at the ends. The gold foliage is surprisingly resistant to burning in full sun and makes a brilliant statement when planted in drifts. The key to successful culture is well drained soil and a spot in full sun. Most losses come from the roots receiving too much water during our rainy winters or planting it in too much shade. Fortunately, once established, this bluebeard only needs occasional watering during prolonged dry weather. These shrubs should be pruned in late winter to about 8 to 12 inches tall. This will encourage strong new growth which flowers best in late summer.
