Practically indestructable. They've had no water from me since they were established, and precious little rain.

I just wish the LillyPilli's behind them were as happy.

Now that you mention it xanadu is one thing that thrives on neglect here too, I might have to get some more.

I like your Portea - I killed mine! :roll:

The big pot on the driveway is a Bay Tree, the one in the garden is Magnolia Little Gem.

They're Aggies.

Yes, I like the second pic... the Mondo looks good.... if you think that is 'out of control'... you haven't seen my patch.. :roll: :roll: .
My excuse... I think a frog lives there so I can't do much about the Mondo. I hear him, not sure exactly which area is his home.
Don't be afraid to colour outside the lines.

The photos are pretty old and it's much wilder now. I really need to take some out where it's invading the bed. It even jumped a root barrier.
