Plectranthus Mona Lavender™ 'Plepalila'

Numerous spikes of lavender coloured flowers begin to appear from late summer through autumn complimenting the ornamental foliage of deep green leaves with dark wine purple coloured undersides, typical of many of the plectranthus species.

Uses:

Plectranthus '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.

Position:

Ideal for low light positions in the garden or containers under covered entertainment areas. Works well to add colour underneath decks.

Care:

Choose a shaded to semi-shade location with a moist but well drained soil. Fertilise with a slow release fertiliser during early spring.

Planting:

A light pruning after flowering will help to maintain a neat shape and encourage denser growth of foliage.
Should be given protection if planted in a more open situation (eg. no roof or tree canopy overhead) as it will not tolerate frosts or temperatures below -2ºc.
