Thanks for the photo!
A quick google indicates that it seems to like shade, so ideal for a tricky spot that I have. Seeds easily found too!

Not one I have come across before Vincent. One to investigate further :-)

It is worth noting that Mt. Stewart is quite mild and I would not think it ever gets down to - 10c. First time I had seen it too, Andrew.
