Wonderful little thing that loves my neglectful nature, thank goodness!! Found as tiny tubestock plant at Bunnings September 2015, now in September 2016 it is a lovely knee high, quite wide bush, that seems to do best when I ignore it and let the rain keep it happy. 


Planted into the ground into a slightly aged layered bed (compost, coir soaked in fish and seaweed, cardboard, bit of manure) and mulched with sugarcane mulch. Slightly under the eaves on the north side of the house, a metre from the brick wall. Lots of sun, and a bit of protection from being drowned.


Never flowered though. Perhaps not old enough?

Planted: 2015

Height 0.6 metres

Growing: In the Ground

Qty: 1

Sun/Shade: Full Sun

Water Given in: Summer

When I Fertilise: Never

Pest Control: Pests don't touch it, and it is sitting in between two passionfruit vines planted at the same time, that have never had a pest problem ever. Quite the strong smell to it when touched, so natural deterrent, perhaps?
