Plectranthus kameba

Plant Type:

SHADE PERENNIALS

Plectranthus kameba – This is a wonderful new introduction designated to become a must have for collectors. Fabulous late season downward-facing deep blue-purple tubed flowers with flared lips on branched inflorescences blossom at the tops of square stems. These occur over opposite rounded strongly serrated leaves with a cleft at the tip nearly dividing each leaf into two lobes. A curious and interesting long tail sprouts from between the two lobes adding even more character to this choice perennial. Site in the woodland shade garden planted in fertile moisture retentive soil. If ordered in autumn these will arrive partailly cut down. Established potted perennial, cutting grown.
