I do have to plant another longer area near this part as well. When I didn't know what the plant was in my neighbors planter, I asked Malaysia Project readers for help in classifying it here. Sean L warned me about the invasiveness of the plant and I am still monitoring it to make sure it doesn't get out of hand. For now, the ground cover looks good.

New Plantings: Asystasia Gangetica
I planted some Asystasia Gangetica along the side of the house a few weeks ago. The first row in the photo are some plants I rooted after taking some from my neighbor's planter (which they were happy to provide as the plants grow so fast!). The row behind are just cut plants that haven't been rooted because we all determined that because they root so easily that the process of rooting in small containers first is unnecessary. So I just planted them in the ground.
