The closest relatives of this striking genus are the bleeding hearts. The Greek name, meaning “crested lark,” alludes to the elegant bird-like appearance of the flowers, which grow in racemes among ferny foliage.
Exalted for its taller, more robust and long-flowering visage, this exciting new C. flexuosa and C. elata cross was bred in France and recently introduced in England. Embodying the best qualities of both parents, ‘Blue Line’s vigorous fine cut foundation maintains a reliable summer presence, highlighting a honey-scented flood of white-throated, deep metallic-blue blossoms on tall reddish tinted stems. The eye-catching flowers keep coming from spring ’til fall and create quite a show alongside Begonia ‘Alba’ and flanked by bold-leafed Rodgersia ‘Bronze Form’.
Size: 15" high x 15" wide.
