Plectranthus is a succulent, and comes in many forms....I will share with you just a few I have had, what I have seen in the UK, and perhaps a few more. I see so many at Wisely (RHS garden)....I only wish they would sell more of it...perhaps the writing of this article will prompt me to ask them....you only need a little cutting :)
This is a good link with places you can buy plectranthus in the UK...(most centres have at least on at their garden center.
Plectranthus neochilus--This one is great ground cover is warm areas (drought tolerant)...but smells unfortunately like skunk (perhaps it will keep cats away?)...I loved it anyway...

Plectranthus madagascariensis 'Variegated Mintleaf'
This variegated plectrathus did so well in plantings in San Diego throughout my flower beds...now I use it here in pots
This plectranthus grows up to 10 feet...mine in San Diego grew up to 6 feet....
|PLECTRANTHUS CILIATUS EASY GOLD|
Last note....these are great for hanging baskets in summer and can grow indoors on a windowsill. Cuttings are so easy and will root in water so a great plant for sharing. I hope you have enjoyed this article....Enjoy searching on this plant...and I hope I have convinced you to try it! Below I have attached a fun little video link.
