Have you tried growing Pardancanda. It's a hybrid of pardanthopsis (sp?)
and the blackberry lily. It's sure done well for me for about 20 years in
several different and difficult growing conditions. Easy from seed, too.
Blooms in July for me when most things are quite well done and on the
way to burnt.
