Neutral coriaceous On May 5, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

Upright, 15-20" tall. True blue flowers from late July into September. Moist well-drained soil in full sun to part shade.

Planted mine late last spring. It only produced a couple of flowers, and many of the stems blackened. I suspect it's in too much shade.

A cross between a G. scabra hybrid and a G. makinoi hybrid.

Hardy Z3-9.
