These plants were grown from cuttings, & watered (with rainwater carried up the lane in buckets!) until established, but now survive on rainfall.
Artemesia, pelagoniums, and the daisies are all very hardy perennials
Right...........There is no break in the bitumen around this stobie pole, so these white ivy-leafed pelagoniums are growing in a heap of humus swept up from the street and lying on the surface.
These purple ivy-leaved pelagoniums are constantly 'pruned' by passers-by taking cuttings, but they eventually made it! For some reason the purple-flowered ones don't strike as easily, or grow as fast, as the pink or white.
This was the first Stobie Pole garden I planted,
almost 18 months earlier than the others.
The Artemesia has grown wild, and badly needs cutting back.
But it smells so refreshing when bruised by passing traffic, especially on a hot day.
So I'll put it off as long as possible.
