This selection has been under evaluation for the past several
years.  It's a stocky dwarf plant with thick, semi-decumbent,
silver-blue stems only 4" - 5" (10-12.5 cm) tall, and round
heads of shrimp pink flowers that have an orange glow from
the underlying yellow color of the florets, and the yellow
buds and anthers. It's a slow grower that takes much longer
to clump up compared to some of the other selections.
