I purchased 4 beautiful plants-so far they are thriving. It has been dry so have to water them frequently as I have them in hanging baskets with coco mat,

I planted a small Mexican heather summer 2007 & it survived the drought in Birmingham, AL. & bloomed constantly. I trimmed it back a few times & cut it back to the ground after the 1st freeze & covered it with leaves. Much to my delight it started coming back in March 2008! Now I'm looking for spots to plant more.

It's a real fast grower and forms a nice "carpet" when used as a border ground cover. We had a major professional installation three months ago and this is one of the few plants that has given us no trouble.

I just love this plant! I grow this in a raised, compost bed and keep it watered. It grows fast and makes the prettiest little purple flowers! I made the mistake of not digging it up last year and bringing it in. The winter here in Western Kentucky killed it. I bought 2 more this year and will certainly be bringing them in before frost. Little care is taken and they thrive in part sun to part shade.
