it is interesting that stenocarpus and macadamia are grown in S.D. yet both are nominally "rainforest" (or at least generally grow near such places) plants that come from areas with much more rainfall than your area. the related grevellia is a protea family member that is much more wide-spread in Australia in a variety of habitats from humid to dry and IS generally more common in landscapes over here (i.e. the west coast) in it's various species and hybrids than any of the others mentioned. interestingly enough g. robusta is widely planted and it also comes from more moist climates in Australia yet does well in many parts of (comparitvely) semi-arid California.
