Had to look this up, Dd. They are a South African rush that doesn't like wet soil! They don't mind cold weather but like a well drained, acid soil in full sun.

They are not hardy Dotty daisy
I know a man that sells them and he said the one I bought would be hardy but it isnt in cheshire!!
He lives down south, so I imagine its where you live to some degree.
They are really unusual arent they
They grow really big some of them
I think it is called trevena cross nurseries in cornwall
