I have a couple of different plants raised from seed collected by JCA ex
Crete (the more delicate form 'ssp. cretensis') that are flowering at the
moment.  They are in a perfectly drained sandy soil on the south/southwest
side of our house, directly up against the wall forming the base of the
front porch.  In our garden this is as protected a site as we have.  Both
plants are vigorous and happy but don't cover themselves in flower.  Perhaps
I should be feeding them?
