It was my collection in the wild years ago before a huge dam covered its wet feet riverine habitat. Several clones were collected and distributed to a number of people. Most died despite the detailed habitat description. Even today one sees photos of flowers "dying of thirst". 

It is a species for sunny hot climates with good iirrigation and under these conditions it clumps rapidly looking like lawns of Ophiopogon japonicum (in a fresher green). It has been grown well in Australia. And no, every seedling and plant in the wild looked the same.
