‘Ben’

Amethyst (H1) flowers; V-IX; dark green foliage; height 10–15cm; spread 31–45cm. Everything about this plant is diminutive, tiny glossy leaves, small flowers and a very neat habit. A must for the sink or trough garden.

Seedling; raised by Mr M. H. Lunn in 1989 and introduced in 1991 by Crail Nurseries (Newstead Abbey Park, Nottinghamshire, England).

Named after the Lunns' King Charles spaniel.
