Positive sueroderus On May 20, 2013, sueroderus from Bluffton, SC wrote:

I planted a few plants in the fall. They are in full sun in zone 8b. They stayed evergreen through the winter and while not flowering, the silver foliage was attractive. Flowering started again in the spring and has been continuous for a couple of months. I have been told the plant does not do well hear in the heat and humidity of summer, so I am not expecting much more. It has not been eaten by deer, a major plus for me.

Very drought tolerant. Low growing, trailing habit, great for hanging baskets with other xeric plants. It can get leggy if planted inground, but ok to trim for a more compact look.

I planted a few of these under a pine tree where it receives morning sun and dappled shad the rest of the day. Has thrived in the garden for about three years now. Old growth gets buried under the plant which eventually creates a mound. Slugs/earwigs live under the plant and love to eat the center out of the yellow flowers, which turns them brown and unattractive.
