If you can find it, get it! Fantastic blue-grey foliage all summer. The flowers are oversized for the plant; a lavender purple background with deep violet-red lines. Wonderful rock garden subject. It is a hybrid between O. ennaephylla and O. laciniata. Mine started to flower in early June and kept on until early September.
