Pronounced 'Mrs. Chumley', the light mauvy-blue, 12.5 to 18.0cm flowers have a slightly paler bar that is overlaid with mauve-blue veins. Their six broad tepals are slightly gappy at the base and taper via gently recurved margins to rounded tips. The stamens have white filaments flushed with blue and coffee-coloured anthers. Hard pruning will keep the plant more compact but will delay flowering by a few weeks.
Mrs. Cholmondely is best suited to planting in the garden.
