Swedish Ivy appears to be P. verticillatus (http://davesgarden.com/guides/pf/go/1354/). It is not listed in GRIN but is listed as an accepted name in The Plant List at Kew (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-158574). P. australis appears to now be considered a synonym of P. parviflorus (http://www.theplantlist.org/tpl/record/kew-340100), which is listed on GRIN.

You're right. Thanks for the information. I found P. verticilatus on the DG website, but since I couldn't find it on GRIN, I didn't quite know where else to look. Tracking down this genus has proved to be challenging. I notice that the Plant List at Kew lists P. parviflorus var. australis as a synonym--as well as many others.
