Did I mention this plant a few days ago?!  I can't remember who I was 
talking to anymore... I think maybe it was not PBS.  :)

So anyway, yeah, I've grown Hypoxis hirsuta in my garden for many years 
now and I'm a bit annoyed with it.  I wanted it to seed around, and it 
hasn't.  I confirmed it sets seed... but either it's not viable... or 
the conditions are too adverse for it to take hold.  The mature plants I 
bought continue to thrive, though.  So like I said, it's rather annoying.

It's one of the few Amaryllids (or Hypoxids) native to my area, and gosh 
darn it it's awfully cute!  I wish it would self seed!

I have the same wish for the local blue eyed grasses I've collected, but 
they just sulk in my garden.  So frustrating!
