Really tired of pruning.
See how much water wisteria is floating there. Almost that much HC also trimmed today. I need to trim this much quantity every week or every 10 days. Is there any way to lower the growth speed.

Nice greenery. A treat for eyes.

Whenever I do a rescape I will carpet it only with Staurogyne repens. It's such a beautiful plant and my favourite.
