Eucomis revisited

Has anyone else grown the Eucomis autumnalis, dwarf form from Devon, offered several years ago by Dawie Human?  I'm really impressed with this one!  It has notably silvery-green foliage, nice short pedicels , decent-sized inflorescences and large slightly disorganized topknots of wavy leaflets.  I just lined most of mine out in a stock bed today, where at least some of them will be left to test winter hardiness.  

I have a few different collections of "dwarf" E. autumnalis, but I have to say that, to date, this is my favorite.  Has anyone else tested hardiness on this one?
