One of the good ones raised by Keith Lever at Aberconwy Nursery in Wales and granted an Award of Merit by the Royal Horticultural Society in 1991.  Large trumpets of dark royal blue tempered with violet and lit by white exterior stripes and throat.  This is a compact grower which makes for a concentrated display of these flowers and would be a suitable subject for a pot.  Full sun in moist soil for best results.
