Cherry Ingram is a compact cultivar of O. cappadocica. It bears slightly bigger flowers and paler to yellowish leaves. This cultivar won the RHS Award of Garden Merit in 1996.

Flowers between March and May in southern England.

Loves a humus rich soil which is slightly moist but well drained in partial shade. We've grown this one for a while and it's always a nice surprise when it blooms for it's startlingly blue flowers.
