Plectranthus

This vigorous foliage plant drapes neatly over container rims, making it ideal for window boxes, hanging baskets, and containers. Plectranthus is available with green-and-white, green-and-gold, and silver foliage; there's something to compliment any container planting. The foliage is extremely fragrant.

Many types of plectranthus are actually perennials in warm-weather areas of Zones 9 and 10. You can also grow many as beautiful houseplants.
