This was a spectacular plant, a solid competitor for best in show at the 2002 AGGS Convention.  It appears to be the clone referred to as C. pulchella 'Copper Leaf', although there are several other bronzy or dark leaved forms.  A flower closeup can be seen here, a conservatory planting here, and an antique print here.
