I love it. 
BTW, Kandy is one of the major cities of Sri Lanka, right in the center of the island, at a high enough elevation that the climate is actually quite pleasant compared to coastal cities (such as Colombo). There is a really nice botanical garden there as well. The town is well worth visiting if you’re ever in Sri Lanka.

Is this being marketed by one of the national wholesalers (i.e., do you think I might be able to find it offered at one of the nurseries here in California)?

I got mine just in time - later in the day I sent a friend in to get one and they were almost gone. The color is incredible, right up there with Tecophilaea, some Tibouchina and some other gentians (Exacum is a gentian family plant). Take a look http://…
