Another pretty one, is it scented?

No PP - no scent on this one either. I just love the tiny purple flowers and the leaf colour ... underneath the leaf is a gorgeous deep purple.

Bernieh:

I really like this plant...here it never seems to be
out of bloom. Does it bloom all year there too?

11 Dec, 2009

 

Yes pretty much all year Andy - but I do prick mine back just to keep it flowering well as long as possible.

Bernieh:

I bet that help keeps it blooming.

I've seen several large specimen in
Balboa Park. I think I may have even
posted a few pics in the past.

The different varieties of plectranthus are now beginning to appear far more in the nurseries over here. They're such a heat, drought hardy plant ... I'm sure they will become very popular in no time at all.

Bernieh:

Yes, I have seen several varieties at the nurseries
here. I know there's white, pinkish flowering varieties
available here -- besides the common blue/purple.
