This speaks much more of my ignorance and dumb luck than of any skills 
at growing plants. I had no idea that Cyanastrum was considered tough 
to grow. Now, I'll probably kill it. In fact, I only purchased it 
because of an email you wrote some time ago where you described it. I 
had never heard of it or seen it before, but then one year it showed up 
in a catalog listing a couple of years ago. So I purchased it on a lark 
because you mentioned it and I thought I'd give it a try, even though I 
didn't know anything else about it.

Should I now be looking for Walleria? What is Walleria? What other 
cool-o neat-o geophytes are out there that none of us commoners knows 
anything about...?    :-)
