This cultivar was selected from Esveldt, Holland and it is a dwarf selection with smaller leaves and flower clusters. It gets about 2 to 4 feet high. I've seen a good number sold at a nurseries in southeast Pennsylvania. Fairly common in Philadelphia region landscapes, especially as foundation plants.
