Thank you Nick and Jim, I have had problems growing Z. atamasco, but it 
is the spring wet bit I didn't know.  I have managed to get one to 
flowering stage from seed, but it was nothing short of a miracle to me. 
It is in the detail the difference lies, wet in spring.

Should have better chance now with the seed of my one and only.

What about Z. simpsonii? Does that have a detail I am missing in the wet 
part?  Like Z. atamasco, I have managed to get one to flower.  But only 
the one.
