I disagree that C. forsteri is synonymous with C. hexapetala, which has linear leaves, and grows into a 3' shrub-form plant. I have read that C. hexapetala is a synonym for C. angustifolia, though.

By the way, my C. hexapetala thrives in zone 5, and although I haven't seen any signs of self-seeding, it grows easily from seed.
