(I thought I had posted this during the registration process, but it doesn't seem to have appeared, so I'll try again. If I have double posted, many apologies.)

A couple of years ago I bought from a stallholder in our local market some little plants which he called aurelias, but which I later discovered were asteriscus aurelia or pallenis maritima. They provided excellent non-invasive ground cover, and were smothered in beautiful golden flowers from late spring to the frosts, which killed them.

I've never been able to find them since - they seem to have totally disappeared, as plants or seeds. Does anyone know what happened to them, and why, or can suggest a source of supply?

Thanks, but have already tried this - last listed in 2007 and not currently available.
