Nice shot of a really nice plant.
Is this a dwarf variety Volval?

Thanks all! Yes, Meanie it is a dwarf - I've put it in a pot with a larger blue one but I couldn't get them both in the pic!

Is it just me, or do the dwarf varieties seem to last longer?

I think they do, Meanie. It's been flowering since I bought it. The larger blue one has fewer flowers and they don't last long. Many years ago, (with car) I used to notice in a local nursery that only a dwarf BLUE one looked in top condition...
