Wayside, DO NOT PLANT H. CHAMELEON IN THE GARDEN.
this will rapidly colonise every part of your garden.
I gave a piece of this to a neighbour once with the advice to grow it in a container but she said she would like it takIng over her garden because it "looks so nice". Big mistake.
I grow this in 2 ways....in the pond in a pot. In a pot with a saucer. It likes moisture and colours better in sun. Lovely orange scented flowers and foliage.
Dry soil does not stop it spreading at all. It simply does not grow as fast but once it gets it's roots into a damper spot, maybe under a stone, it will run riot.
