plant question

At the Lasdon plant sale today I purchased a plant that I have never seen 
before, and no one seemed to have any information about it.  The tag is 
hand-written and not  extremely legible, but as best I can make out it says 
Seresita tortida.  Neither Hortus Third nor Exotica has a listing for this.  
The plant is a tiny shrub with woody branches - about 5 inches high with very 
closely-set minute leaves and tiny pink blossoms about a quarter inch across 
- the leaves are much smaller.  The blossoms arise right along the branches, 
not at the tips.  The plant is charming and since my garden club specializes 
in miniature or dwarf plants, it seemed an obvious thing I "needed" to have.  
But I do need to know something about it.  Since it was in the greenhouse, I 
assume it is tender.  Any information would be appreciated.   Auralie
