PP24009.
Very striking and fully tetraploid form of H. 'First Frost'.
Unbelievably thick blue leaves have a very wide feathered creamy-yellow border. Named for the brother of Paul Vernooij from Holland who died of cancer recently and a donation will be made to the Cancer Foundation for each plant sold.
Large lavender flowers.
'Ben Vernooij' differs from 'Autumn Frost' in that the leaves are thicker.
Grows a bit slower than the parent.
