One of the darkest of the cristata selections, the violet-blue petals are made to appear even darker by the little thumbprint of yellow and white at their bases.  A small but mighty little woodland creeper which would revel in bright shade or morning sun.  The thin rhizomes trundle along on the surface and are plenty hardy so don't bury them in mulch!
