Question: is mona lavender a perennial or annual?

Answer: Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender' is a vigorous, upright, rounded, bushy perennial that typically grows to 2? tall and as wide. Unlike many members of the genus Plectranthus, this hybrid is in fact primarily grown for its attractive lavender flowers which appear over a long bloom period.

Winter hardy to USDA Zone 10 where it is easily grown in humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade. Trim off new stem tips regularly to retain compact shape and form. Remove flower spikes after bloom. In your gardening region, this plant may be grown as a houseplant in bright mostly sunny exposures.
