Toatoa seeds freely in my garden without being a nuisance. It seems to grow anywhere, shade, sun, wet, dry. Potted or bagged it goes backward quickly, probably because it is so vigorous. A good shearing a couple of times a year keeps it bushy.

Thanks Toni, I agree Haloragis is a great plant especially for suppressing weeds in revegetation plantings. Certainly a twice-a-year pruning will keep it looking its best. Geoff
