SPU: spuria postings

I'm so glad to see the photos of the spurias.  Here in upper central Texas 
where it's hot and very windy most of the time when they bloom (not this 
year) they suffer some from the effects of both.  Nonetheless they tend to 
be easy, rewarding plants to grow once they are established.  Here they get 
pretty tall, though most don't quite reach registered heights.  They are 
carefree plants once established.  I pretty much leave them alone except for 
trying to kick-start them in the fall by giving some supplemental water. 
If I could wish for one thing, it would be that they wouldn't go dormant 
because their reed-like foliage is really nice and I'd like to have it all 
summer long.
