I love plectranthus,it's impossible to kill or plant in a bad spot.
DD heisted a sample from outside a resturante 3 years ago and the rest is history.

so true.. great houseplant... sun .. shade.. it's all good.. just an amazing plant.. my neighbor saved some from her planter outside.. think I gave her the first ones three years ago... we went through the power outage and freezing temps in oct.. they were fine in her unheated garage.. so I took a pot and she still had one in the garage... went to Florida in Feb.. came back right after Easter... the thing was still alive .. no heat.. no water... no light Rolling on the floor laughing granted most of the leaves dropped.. but still .. very impressive .. I must have made 40 plants off that one pot to give away to everyone

I was actually surprised how well the mona lavender overwintered as well... my little cuttings grew strong .. the one deep cell six pack.. most of the coleus with it died that week with no heat.. but the one mona lavender even jumped the dividers and more or less rooted it self through the whole six pack.. I had a heck of a time getting it out .. it was the only one that didn't get snake like so I planted it in the garden rather than a pot to see how it would do

I might have a new favorite plant Thumbs up

did you see the variegated one I bought this year? .. just love it!!.. flowers are tiny tiny.. but love it anway

I was kind of bummed to see the flowers were too tiny for the hummers to get nectar off them.. but all the plectranthus I let bloom.. and just deadhead.. the trailing one looked fantastic last year loaded with blooms
