Although it rained almost all summer last year, prior to that we had experienced a rather prolonged drought. I lost so many plants in the garden. I don't yet have a rainwater tank and couldn't justify keeping decorative plants alive.
One of the few plants to survive was my dwarf Indian Hawthorn (raphiolepsis indica). It's planted in a hot, dry corner and doesn't receive much attention.
Despite that, it seems to have thrived. I certainly delight in it's pretty pink blossom.
