Another of the recent introductions from China,
C. elata is said to be rather similar to C. flexuosa,
but it grows much more upright and taller to 24"
(60 cm) or more, and has equally pretty bright
blue flowers that are richly perfumed. The flowers
on this species begin late June, and are at peak
flowering in July, considerably later than the
spring blooming C. flexuosa types.
