C. jouiniana Praecox

A truly garden-worthy plant that deserves to be more popular. This non-clinging sub shrub is happy almost anywhere but excels as a ground cover on a gradual slope. The 1.5-2" (4-cm)lavender hyacinth-like flowers are closely produced about twenty per stock giving the impression of a panicle of color. The flowers are produced from July to late September. Mature height 12-20' (3.5-6m) if left unpruned or 6-10' (1.8-3m) if pruned. Pruning group B or C.
