Absolutely love to get in the garden when I can. Love birds, fish and plants. I live in the heart of Sydney suburbia on an average block of land

Thanks Nej. You have kept it a nice shape. I was thinking it might be straggly if you didnt keep on top of the pruning.

It seems to keep itself a tidy mound @deekay, I only need to prune the odd wayward stems

@lesliecole49 this one doesn't spread but stays as a clump

Right, I've seen many plants or varieties of, on this site grown as garden plants. I've always seen them as wildflower/weeds ... Not anything I would have thought of cultivating. Interesting, things I've seen here.

Those leaves are an unusual shape.

They are the main feature of this plant and it's very easy to grow and propagate @deekay. I have struck 5 cuttings from this and they are ready for planting. I'm going to make a low informal hedge from them 😊
