Our latest hybridizing breakthrough. Like its parent, 'Tortifrons', the leaves are dark green and contorted but unlike its parent, it grows very well making a full clump quickly. Small clump of upright and arching twisted, shiny dark green leaves; lavender flowers in September and October, frequently on forked scapes.
