Ray Clark ... "I picked this little beauty up from Derek about 4 years ago and itís doing very nicely. Grown quite high up in the shade house exposed to most of the elements, obviously reasonably hardy." Derek Butcher ... "But not easy to actually flower." Chris Larson ... "It is a long time between flowerings for this one here in Melbourne.
This looks like the small clone that seemed to originate in SA. Both small and large form are well worth having in any collection.
Recently I flowered a seedling of T. exserta ex-Isley. But to me it looks like some foreign pollen must have snuck in."
