Tony adds an interesting thought.  I'm germinating about 17 species 
right now.
I've been planning to grow them in open sandy ground and see which are hardy
enough to overwinter on the B.C. (Canada) coast.  Several should be.  I 
see a few of the hybrids
coming back locally year after year, as long as they're in well drained 
sites.  I will select from
these species and *possibly* breed them toward hardiness, flower/foliage 
quality/quantity,  etc.
