I remember Hywel's picture of this plant - they are very pretty. That soup looks good. Mum has a pot of Tattie and Leek on at the moment and the smell is going round my heart. I'm hoping it will be ready for me to take some to work tonight!

Thanks for showing your Plectranthus. The flowers are really pretty :o)
I have grown P. verticillatus (Sweedish Ivy) in the past and it flowered almost every year. This is the first time for me to grow this variety.
I hope it flowers again next year - we'll see what the weather's like lol

Hello all, the plant is a Plectranthus, it is used as summer basket, house plant, it is tender, we have a yellow leafed version which is also attractive....
The soup is roasted pepper and tomato,a hot and spicy one! ideal for this time of the year......

Any chance of the recipe for this soup, Dotty ?

That soup and scone bread looks so delicious! Yum, Yum! I want some. :>)

That's great your Plectranthus is blooming! This plant grows wild in the parks here in San Diego, CA. It can grow to 5' (1.5m) tall in two years or so.

I have a variegated one growing in my front yard for about 8 years.

What a feast just the food you need for this weather, and the plants flowers are very delicate.

Must get on and make that bread - I did print off the recipe. the soup looks fantastic. We'll all be knocking at your door at this rate...

Stera the only problem with the scone bread. it is very moreish, it does not always make a second day, have made it for two lots of visitors, who loved it also....
Delonix I have not seen a variegated one, do you have any photos on? I will pop some scone in the post lol
Rose the soup is one of the BBcs good food recipes, I find their site and Allrecipes to be invaluable, will pop it on if you would like me to, or I could pm you with it?

Yes, I've posted many photos of Plectranthus in the past. Here's my variegated Plectranthus fosteri 'Marginatus' in the front yard. It's growing under my huge, 85' (26m) tall Norfolk Island Tree (Araucaria heterophylla).

Could you p.m. it over Dotty please. That would be great , thanks.

DD, Not lasting for a second day isn't a problem, its a compliment. the solution is perhaps to make two at once...

Rose will do, when I can find it, Stera I know but then that would encourage us to eat even more!!
