From Question and Answer Forums: What are others saying about this plant?
would like to know where I can buy this in the Seattle WA area Sammamish, 98074. Thanks.
I purchased this plant ealier this year from a local Lowes. I would like to propagate this plant so that I can have a few more on my deck next spring. I was told that this plant root easily in water, but four inch cuttings that I made did not strick roots in water at all for some reason. What am I doing wrong Do I need to use very soft tips
i am looking for this plant to buy,i cant find it
Most of the larger independent garden stores will carry this annual. It will be available in early May.
I saw this plant at a Lowes in Indiana, I live in Louisiana, and did not buy it, now I cant find it. I would like to find it.

Plectranthus forsteri is an upright-spreading tender perennial that grows to 10 inches tall and spreads to 3 feet wide. ‘Marginatus’ is a variegated cultivar with round, scallop-edged, light green leaves (to 4 inches long) with creamy white margins that appear on reddish upright stems that trail with age. Leaves emit a mild citrus aroma when bruised. Tubular, two-lipped, tiny pale pink to white flowers bloom in racemes to 6” long in summer. Flowers are not showy.
The hybrid 'Mona Lavender', has beautiful dark green leaves with contrasting purple undersides and dark lavender flower spikes from early spring until the first frost. Reaching 24 to 30 inches in height, it does very well in either shaded or partly sunny positions, but the leaves exhibit a much more intense coloring in sun.
