@carolgs yes Carol. Driest mildest February I’ve ever known. Normally it’s the rainy season and filthy hot and humid. Even been wearing long sleeve T-shirts and slippers. Still shorts. Not cool enough for jeans

Wow! These tolerate dry conditions well. They often grow up in cracks...says a lot about the heat. Hope you get a break soon.

@brightcolours in the right environment yes. Not here. So dry and clay. I planted a few for a bit of colour. They’re struggling
