This rich lavender or violet-blue variety has been grown since 1930, and is still popular for its fine colour and profuse flowering. One parent is R. augustinii, a memorable blue species classed as a Triflora, its huge blooms grouped in threes rather than in denser clusters. The other is R. intricatum, a dense, dwarf, twiggy shrub from China. The result is a small, slow-growing shrub, ideal for the larger rock garden or container, with masses of large violet-blue flowers in small compact trusses. Plants are a little variable, and the variety is often listed as Bluebird Group.
