A particularly attractive form of plectranthus that does not spread like other members of the family, but rather forms a neat low shrub with an upright, erect habit. Numerous spikes of lavender coloured flowers begin to appear from late summer through autumn complementing the ornamental foliage of deep green leaves with dark wine purple coloured undersides, typical of many of the plectranthus species.
P. 'Mona Lavender' is a wonderful solution to shady areas in the garden as well as making an ideal container or basket specimen for sheltered patios or entertainment areas. A light pruning after flowering will help maintain a neat shape and encourage denser growth of foliage. P. 'Mona Lavender' originates from South Africa and was, in fact, bred at the famous Kirstenbosh Botanical Garden in Cape Town.
