Plectranthus strigosus (Dwarf)

Description

A low mat-forming plant that grows to about 1 foot wide with short succulent red stems and 1 inch long, slightly toothed green leaves with red veins; the stems are covered in reddish hairs. From the stem tips emerge delicate racemes of small white flowers in open whorls in spring through summer. Plant in bright shade in a well drained soil and irrigate occasionally. Hardy to about 30 F. This is a nice delicate plant for a small scale groundcover in a near frost free shady site, even tolerating deep shade, or it can be used as a container plant or even a houseplant in bright light.
