 I grew the pressliana Ellen offered, aurea, pulchella, and psitacina and all were very short lived perennials in Kansas, even shorter here. The heat did them in. I found them to attempt to go dormant in the summer put up fall growth, die back over the winter and put up a pathetic spring display. The last was the only one that persisted more than 2 years.

Dear Jane, Ellen etc....

    The first 50 Google hits had NO plants for sale of this weedy 
easy to grow species. Why is this?

    I could moan about the demise of Seneca Hill (which I am 
doing quietly), or complain about the general pitiful poor state of 
nursery offerings.
