I didn't realise we had brought it with us when we moved here ! There was one little stem amongst the Zandetischia !
Isn't nature amazing !

I like this, but it does tend to take over if you don't keep an eye out for it!

Hi Rose it took me five years to get rid of this pretty flowering plant, every time I thought I had dug it all out up it came again spreads fast in beds and ponds and can take over lawns, it also roots from the bottom of pots in to the ground or between the patio paving which is how mine spread under the paving and into a bed.
Unless you dont mind the spread its worth putting in a large pot on feet were the roots cannot escape.

It was lovely meeting up with Sandra, Carole, Chris and their husbands ... shame we didn't have more time together.

Yes it was Shirley ! But at least now you can put names to faces ! I bet you all had such a good time together even if it was short ! Wish I'd been there !
I don't mind Drc726...I love it and it only seems to stay in this area at the moment !

Sadly Rose I think you will find it is creeping along underground.

Its actually in a tiny part of the border in the raised bed , so really has nowhere to go Tugbrethi ! But I really don't mind as its so pretty and doesn't interfere with other plants around it !

Enjoy it Rose as it is a pretty plant both the flowers and leaf colours.
