If you Google "castilleja nargs quarterly" you find them on the first page.
I currently have C. thompsonii from AGS seed, sown January 2014, in a pot with a weedy Epilobum that is rampant in my garden and often invades seed pots. I potted it on a few months back and noticed it apparently had a quite small root system, so disturbed it/them minimally. It has 3 shoots the tallest is ~2" and moving a bit and looks healthy, but the Epilobum I pinched back looks very unhealthy.
RHS Wisley used to exhibit Castilleja in the alpine house sometimes, usually I think with small sedges in the same pot. I have seen one species flowering in the garden of a North Wales AGS member.
