I can vouch for this as well!!  Michael sent me some of the seed from his
A. henryi early last year, planted in around March I think...... didn't
germinate until Sept-October (Got 3 from 6).  Have their third leaves now
and I am still unsure whether to repot them or not.  Don't want to disturb
them <grin>.

So..... Perseverence!!
