Veltheimia brac. aurea

Dear Jude,

I find the 'yellow' form a weaker growing plant, but it does bloom reliably.
The only difficulty is that the animals devour both it and the other colored
forms  just as soon as the blooms are almost fully open. There's frustration
around here!

Another PBSer and I were talking about the yellow Veltheimia, and how both
of us have had poor luck with this cultivar. He lost some seedlings, and I
could never get the seeds to grow (My pinks, and Rosalbas come up like
weeds, under identical conditions.) I am wondering if this is a common issue
people have with the yellow ones for some reason? Or are these just two
isolated "bad luck" incidents? 
Curious to see what others have to say.
