Tony, you mentioned Titanotrichium oldhamii in your list of hardy

Although I've never seen it, I've never forgotten the description of it in
the Elbert's Miracle Houseplants: evidently, it's like a late-blooming 5
foot yellow foxglove. I'd say that there is definitely a so-far-unfilled
garden niche for a plant like that!

Does it do well for you or does it just barely survive? When does it bloom?

This plant has been in cultivation for over a half century, yet it's
virtually unknown, so there must be a catch!
