This plectranthus likes me! He really likes me! Most plectranthus fade relatively quickly here in the low desert. These bask .25 of the day and flourish. Here they are with Cousin Ernstii

Such a pretty little pop of green!

For a more delicate plant it was lovingly packed and shipped with no breakage, and arrived very healthy. It is right at home on my patio, and is already showing new growth!
