The Rondeletia odorata is getting more bushy and has been reliably producing lots of orange flowers. Interestingly, the self-sown Vitex trifolia growing on the concrete rock face of the pond is such a joy to watch with its small bluish flowers. One thing is for sure. It does not or rather cannot grow in water because one of the branches that grew into the water and out is completely devoid of leaves. The Ludwigia sedioides has also spread considerably since the last time I saw it.
