Hi Jude

That pretty much describes quite a lot of the plants that we grow, from many years experience. Just some are not so little and cost much more than 2 cents. ;-) A long gone friend of mine who used to breed plants, in cool damp woodland in southern England, used to sort his latest batch of plants by size. The "runt" (the smallest plant) was apparently just right for Alpine gardeners. ;-)
