Yeah, I basically beat mine into submission with a bone, dead dry wnter.
But the fact that it seems happy to grow in winter, or in spring, and will
grow in summer xcept in extreme heat makes me think it could be a hybrid of
socialis and some winter growing *Ledebouria*.  OTOH, it's SO distinct that
maybe it's an undescribed species...? Oh well.
