Plectranthus sp.

Plectranthus sp.

Family lamiaceae
Life cycle
Flowers lavender

I picked this up at a local nursery, unmarked, and planted it in a part-shade border. When it started blooming, I asked around and was told it was a plectranthus. In my online perusals, I haven't found any cultivars that closely resemble this one, so the full identification (along with life cycle/hardiness and other characteristics) will have to wait for now. It's a nice-looking plant, in any case, with attractively serrated, glossy mid-green leaves and spikes of spidery flowers that open upward along the stem.

In our garden, this plant grows in the following area: foundation border
