I noticed today that one of the neighbours kids has this on his footpath plant stall. How drought tolerant is it?


Does anyone know it's water needs?

Sorry, Bubba, I didn't receive a follow-up notification on this one.

I can tell you from experience it won't survive terribly well on none. :roll: It will survive moderately well on a little water, but is happier with maybe twice-weekly (or so) watering during summer - that is in a pot. I haven't grown it in the ground myself, though I have seen it growing in the ground quite happily in half day sun.

Thanks Pam. I'll see how much he wants for it.
