They are highly resistant to the most extreme weather conditions, and this characteristic, together with their tendency to occupy large horizontal spaces, makes them highly suitable for covering rock gardens or roof surfaces. Their green expanse tend to become even more distinctive in the late afternoon, when their vibrant yellow flowers bloom, giving an extra touch of color to your outdoors! Here are some tips for its proper care and cultivation: Hereroa likes an exposition to full sun and rather airy situations.
