Size: Mini (10"w x 5.5"h)
Origin: H. ‘Wiggle Worms’ x H. ‘Red Sox’
Flowers: medium lavender, tubular flower late in season has light striping.
Source: Royal Botanical Society, Toronto - gift from a friend

Notes: I think it has rhizomatous tendencies. It's also fertile and I have one potentially interesting seedling from it. It was also divided in the spring.

At 8 years in my garden, I think mine is now mature and won't be getting much larger. Picture July 16, 2014.
