Nemesia cheiranthus or any of its cultivars?

Most other species of Nemesia don't do well in our summer heat around here, and are grown as cool-season annuals. They are native to Namaqualand in S Africa, which is pretty hot & dry, so it makes me wonder if they might do well for me.

Supposedly they are somewhat coconut-scented......and such bizarre flowers....let me see if I can pull a pic in from the database

I haven't heard of it either, but it is very pretty. The bloom kind of reminds me of the shape of columbine.

I've tried to germinate these several times, but haven't yet found the key to getting sprouts.
