Flowers soft blue-violet and sweetly scented, the wings and keel darker than the standard. Standard 2.2-2.5 cm wide, with a white blotch, yellow from the base to about halfway up. Pod small, with only 1-2 seeds and rarely produced. This is the clone originally int. to England in 1816 and described as w. sinensis. The cultivar name is the anglicised version of the name of the Chinese merchant from whose garden it apparently came.
