unidentified species

Is somebody keen enough to identify this species. I lost the label from this plant which is about 8cm tall.

It is a well-marked form and very neat, Carlo - I'm guessing that Ger is growing this outside, which helps to sharpen the colour.  He'll tell us, I hope....

Yes, I'm growing this plant outside, being fairless, I forgot this plant untill yesterday when I saw this very tiny clear blue gem between the small rocks in full sun.
The colour on the photo is a bit too blue but it is a real beauty.
Thank you Maggi given it a name.
