I grew all mine from seed except H. dalmatica 'Grandiflora', and they 
are very good germinators, which is not surprising considering how 
little they increase vegetatively. I'll try to provide more seeds 
next year. This year I sent H. leucophaea seed to NARGS but the 
cataloger listed it as a subsp of H. atchleyi, which surprised me as 
they don't look very similar in foliage and shape of inflorescence. 
H. leucophaea is the only pure white one I grow and quite beautiful 
for a tiny plant.
