Plectranthus ecklonii

Plant pretty purple Plectranthus for Fall fabulosity! Here’s where you can think ahead and plant this absolutely wonderful shrub now for Fall bloom. Every year I always look forward to its abundance of large and exquisite 6-12” blue-purple flower spikes with their long swooping stamens. Very long-lived, sturdy, and CLAY TOLERANT,it’s a handsome guy even when not in bloom with its bushy habit and large lush rich green, heart-shaped leaves. Very easy and fast growingto 6’ x 4’ -cut it back to 10” in Winter for best bushiness next season. Butterflies and hummers! Half day sun.
