Gardeners' Notes:

Positive WebInt On Apr 3, 2009, WebInt from Vista, CA (Zone 10a) wrote:

I am very surprised this plant is not found more in SoCal gardens. It blooms year round, handles the winters with ease, and is actually a pretty long-lived plant for its size. More then 5 years I have observed. The plant grows pretty fast and makes a nice colorful ground cover when they start to mat together. Watering needs are not high once established either. You can see from my picture how nice it can look. And remember, it looks like this year round!
