    The plant looks cute, is it a dwarf variety or does it grow much taller than that?

    Indeed, Aussie species makeup: 45% tetragonum, 23% kingianum, 19% bigibbum, & 13% speciosum.
    (Louise's Rainbow x Lorikeet)= Jodi Lousie (sic). Don't know if that name is as intended, or someone transposed a letter, but as recorded. The final hybrid is unnamed. Anyone's guess as to how large, but not a mini, I'd bet.
