It's Ae. recurvata alright, but not v. benrathii. I think this one is recurvata v. recurvata, but I usually just see it as recurvata Red or something along those lines. It's a self-pollinator, easy to grow from seeds.

HI Chrisn82 and everybody - I'll plug for Ae. recurvata grown hard in full sun.

All the best, Nev.
