Thanks Stacey-lovely rose-The rain is over and my house is not in a flood plain. No landslides or anything like that. We did have torrential rains though-sometimes it was as much as 2-3" an hour. Not fun to be out in. We had 1/2 of our yearly rain in 6 days.
"Yes I know the plant well, they love our climate in Australia, a fast grower, will cover an old ugly fence in one season. Loves a good hair cut and then flowers again.It has a dormant period for a couple of months during winter, but stays alive."
