    This plant supposedly likes it very moist and will even grow in water. (I'm going to try that one of these days.) I planted some next to a rock water feature to hide the supporting grate. It has taken off from there and is quite aggressive in my sporadically watered rock garden of succulents. It has also crossed my gravel driveway and is now growing in another rather dry area. It's very bright and pretty.
