In addition to the problems usually cited in discussing Rhodohypoxis (winter
treatment, where to get them), I think there is another issue which might
curb their popularity even if they should become readily available: in the
garden they look just like impatiens (the I. waller1ana garden sorts). In
this sense, their niche in the garden has already been filled. 

I've grown them here in Maryland outside year 'round in my bog trays where
they persisted for years. I eventually lost them, but I think that was due
to the rats which moved in and not to winter loss.
