Plectranthus spicatus - Durban Lavender

This is a succulent plectranthus with small bright green, serrated leaves. It has a long bloom period of narrow 12 inch spikes of lavender blue flowers. In nature, it is found growing in full sun in hot dry rocky ground inland of Durban, South Africa. In gardens there, it is used as a vigorous ground cover and has been found suitable as a green roof plant. It's a tough groundcover that prefers dry conditions and grows in both sun or semi-shade. The shallow root system makes it ideal for shallow dry soil. Try it as a succulent groundcover for rockeries, slopes, or planted around Aloes or other large succulents. However be cautious, as it grows rapidly and might smother less vigorous smaller plants and can be damaged by the lightest frost. It does make an excellent potted plant where it has a more compact habit.
