More Information About Plectranthus
Plectranthus (aka Isodon or Rabdosia) is a genus of small airy perennials and shrubs that are underused in gardens. These charming plants are relatives of mint, and salvia and the family resemblance is apparent when they bloom in the fall when little else does. The masses of tiny blue, pink, or white, tube-shaped Plectranthus flowers are perfect companions to just about anything that they grow near. No matter how you grow it, you will be charmed.
Unlike most fall-flowering plants, Plectranthus prefers woodland conditions...partial shade, well-amended soil, and consistent moisture. The name Plectranthus is a nearly direct translation of the common name Spurflower. When you're ready to buy Plectranthus for your perennial garden, check out our online list of Plectranthus for sale.
