    Screamingly bright color! Is it a smaller than average plant? (The clonal name causes me to wonder ....)

    I presume this is Renanthera Tom Thumb (Ren. monachica x Ren. imschootiana), not some unknown Renanthera hybrid with a clonal name (Ren. ??? 'Tom Thumb'). Great color for sure. The name is a bit puzzling since I doubt this hybrid would be normally be a compact plant.
