(='Blogold') A long-blooming hybrid Cranesbill, a huge improvement on the older types. This forms a low, sprawling mound of deeply cut leaves that start out amber in spring, changing to chartreuse and later green. Clusters of deep violet-blue cup-shaped flowers appear in early summer, continuing for months, especially in cool-summer regions. Excellent for massing or using near the border edge, also in containers. If flowering stops in midsummer, prune plants back to 4 inches to rejuvenate. Could well prove to be hardy in Zones 3 or colder. USPP#12955: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
