RE: plant question


I only used it in dish gardens and containers for its diminutive size.
When entering in flower shows, I like to keep everything in scale.

Thanks so much, Chris.  That is what it looks like.  I wonder where the
name came from - I have looked at it carefully, but can't make serissa
out of 
what is written there.  Does it need to be in a terrarium, or will it
well in a pot?  I think it is a charming plant and it should be perfect
our miniature flower shows.

doesn't really focus on any other type of plants.  
Thanks again.           Auralie
