A seedling found in the gardens at Pan Global Plants in England and named by the proprietor Nick Macer.  This is a hybrid between two of the blue flowered Chinese species, C. flexuosa and C. elata that combines excellent vigor with blue scented flowers for moist shade to zone 6 at least.  This was named by Nick for the conservative members of Parliament or "true blues".  It was fun to have Nick visit the nursery in 2015 when we hosted the international Mahonia Summit on its final day and to show him some of his plants we are growing.  Nick is a heckuva plant hunter as well who could probably retire early if he moved to the States and had his own TV gardening show.  Not only does he know plants but he has that damned charming accent and is way too good looking.  Thanks to Ed Bowen for sharing this selection with us and who rivals Nick in everything but the accent.
