I spent one summer watching Grease with a bunch of my cousins. Over and over and over again. I wanted to be Olivia Newton John. Race nor lack of singing ability were of concern. I think this is where my love of all things Australian began. So when I spotted a plant with Australi in the name, I couldn’t help myself. I kind of don’t even care about the flowers of Baptista Australis. The green leaves are good enough.
