Mark, Anne-Marie et al,
For those who do not have access to Jeppe's book (listed on the Silverhill website booklist for anyone seeking a copy) the description is as follows.

The species is acaulescent producing a rosette of trifoliate leaves, initially apple-green but darkening slightly with age, with dark undersides. Each leaflet has a pronounced purple midrib and a narrow purple fringe. The flowers are very pale lilac with a yellow throat, held singly on ~2 to 3 inch petioles well above the foliage. The flowers are very delicate and the overall effect is very pleasing.
