Early summer downunder:  Cuphea hyssopifolia - Mexican False Heather (Cuphea hyssopifolia (Hawaiian Heather))

In tropical areas this is commonly used as a permanent evergreen groundcover and delivers an almost non-stop flower show as a bonus. One of the great summer shows!

Beautiful and generous in bloom ...
I have three copies to the white flower still blooming despite the winter temperatures ...

Yes it's such a hardy plant Amano - puts up with all sorts of conditions and still flowers!
