About plant names...

This popular cultivar of false spirea has dark glossy bronze-green leaves and pale, rose-pink flowers. It grows to about 16" (40 cm) high.

There is a lot of documentation of this plant on the web, but I couldn’t figure out who Hennie Graafland is. Assuming, of course, that Hennie Graafland is a person.
