Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Dec 12, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

The Chicago Botanic Garden found flowering on this C. carpatica hybrid to be much heavier than that of any form of C. carpatica grown, and it bloomed for almost 3 months. Its heath and survival were good on their sometimes flooded heavy soil where all the C. carpatica had heavy winter losses. http://www.chicagobotanic.org/downloads/planteval_notes/no31...

Also performed unexpectedly well in the heat and humidity at the Juniper Level Botanic Garden, Raleigh, NC.

Hardy at least to Z4a, and perhaps Z3. The parent C. carpatica is hardy in Z3-7, according to Armitage.

This is hybrid was found by Diana Reeck of Collector's Nursery, Battle Ground, WA.

This is a lovely alternative to Blue Clips -- a slightly more periwinkel or lavender color with a lighter center. It has a taller and more spread out habit. If deadheaded, it blooms virtually all summer. Very nice.
