Beautiful and so colourful!! . :D :D You should send the photo to your local council to show what could be done on the median strip opposite you . A few interested neighbours with some cuttings and a bit of council help and your streetscape could be as good as your garden.

I often think more should be done by private gardeners in the public domain .We live out of town with a highway frontage but are 1/2 mile down the drive .But we've planted extensively out the front to beautify the area and we only see it when we drive in and out .Our neighbours closer to the highway get the benefit when everything blooms , and of course the local birds love it

Oh thats so lovely of you to say Huxter , thank you :)
I didn't want just the small round patch of it you see about here and there.
The council did come and photograph it once, not sure what came of that. But I do have a sneaky desire to go plant some of this on the sides of freeway offramps , brighten the world a bit ,LOL.

Hi Orchid:)

I planted the pigface 2 years ago.. just small sprigs about 10 cm apart.
I don't water it at all and trim it after flowering. Its about finished now.
