Plectranthus tomentosus is a perennial, succulent-like herb or branched subshrubs with aromatic leaves spreading approximately 50-75 cm round. It is commonly known as the "Vicks Plant" for its leaves that smell like Vick's Vap-O-Rub or mentholatum when crushed.

Grows in savanna and dry forested regions. It is used to treat intestinal upsets. The flowers are white to light purple, and exceptionally attractive to honey bees. Give this one room, as it can spread to three of four feet across. Prune back by half every six months to reduce woodiness. Has a strong camphor aroma overlaying. Excellent in herb mixtures (usually very hard to find). Very fast growing - ideal for filling empty spots.

The plant prefers dry conditions, very drought tolerant.
