Tiny Thomasia is a dwarf shrub, usually no more than 10cm tall. It is a West Australian species, but seems to be doing well in my garden in the east of Australia. Like all Thomasias, the petals are minute, but the sepals are brightly coloured, forming purplish-pink bells covered with deep red spots.
