Summer planting
Contrary to popular opinion, summer planting is fine as long as adequate water is provided throughout any prolonged dry periods. This allows you to take advantage of increased summer growth.

Scarlet Piripiri (Ground Cover)
Red or bronze-green foliage. Spiky, red seed heads are very attractive. If humidity is high, plant it in a windy, exposed site.
