A young plant I bought a couple of years ago in a fit of curiosity has now flowered, and I think I can say with confidence that it isn't
C.hookerianum - best guess so far is C.iridoides. Very attractive - especially to slugs which got to the flower long before I did
with a camera.

This year it has managed to flower without undue slug damage. The identity is still uncertain but there are a number of complex hybrids
coming into the country from China and this may well be one of them.
