Default Dwarf Coustralee?

I am a newbie to T'ville but have grown Coustralee for 3 seasons and it's a favorite. I read somewhere in past threads about someone developing a Dwarf Coustralee ! Yay! Maybe someone named Lee? I would love to hear more about this or buy some seeds but can't find much via google. Any info? Thanks in advance...submerging myself into all this dwarf development info and progress is incredible! Congrats to all who have taken part.

Here you go,all you ever wanted to know about this variety.

Happy reading.

And yes, I know Lee, the person you refer to, he loves that variety, and I ended up sending him some seeds, since his were not right for the variety from his own saved seeds as I remember./

I've read nothing or heard of no one mentioning a dwarf version, but you might want to ask someone here at TV if it has been used as a parent in the Dwarf Project since I don't keep up with all the crosses and grow outs in that project. I doubt it, but it never hurts to ask.

Good memory! Yes, it was Lee who made the cross but haven't heard anything about it for a few years, you might want to PM him and ask.

Thanks everyone. PM sent. It looks like he was still working on it in 2016 so I am hopeful!

Lee still works full time,so if you don't get back anything from your PM,let me know since he is a participant in my seed producer group and I can ask him directly
