"If you are looking for a plant that loves the heat, doesn't mind long, humid summers, and is reasonably drought tolerant, then consider plumbago... The plumbago blooms non-stop from summer until first frost. It seems to have no diseases or pests... Although it blooms best in full sun, the plumbago can take considerable shade and still have an abundance of blooms. It will keep your yard full of butterflies all summer."

Dichondra 'Silver Falls'    I always assumed it would prefer full, hot sun….. most silver-leaved plants do.  To my surprise, it is the plants in afternoon SHADE that grew the most lush, and had the longest trails of lovely silver foliage !  Dichondra does like sun, also. Growth is tighter and leaves are smaller in hot sun.  experiment with this as groundcover.
