They ARE really easy.  I have them in both sun and shade and they do fine.
Flower religiously every year without a problem.  By your description mine
have never seeded, but I can live with that <grin>.

Out of interest, has anyone in Australia had them seed naturally?  I wonder
if we don't have the pollination vector here?  Maybe our flies are a
different size, or whatever would naturally pollinate it just doesn't have
an equivalent here?  Just a thought.
