Dwarf Strelitzia - Slightly OT

Dear All;
	Excuse the slightly off topic note, but comes from the 
delusional belief that everything grows on the Pacific coast and 
probably someone on this list grows it.

	I fell in love with Strelitzia juncea on a visit to 
Huntington Gardens (Clivia Symposium - there's a connection) and 
would love to grow it, but it is awfully large. I found a source for 
a Dwarf Strelitzia juncea and wonder if anyone has experience with 
it. Does it bloom well?  How big does it actually get? Since it 
requires an order from S. Africa it might be an investment and I'd 
like to know if this is a true dwarf or even if available in the US 

	Or anyone interested in splitting the costs if we order 2 or 3?

	Thanks	Jim W.
