E. x cantabrigiense is a garden hybrid of E. alpinum and E. pubigerum, with leaves that are evergreen (as in E. pubigerum) but more closely resembling E. alpinum. Flowers are small and softly-coloured.

Has proved hardy in zone 3, Alberta, Canada, over a few years now.

This evergreen hybrid has pinkish, beige and yellow flowers. Mid-green, glossy leaves display variable colors in autumn and are evergreen. A long-lived and especially sturdy garden plant.
