In September 2017 I went on a propagation course and was able to keep some of the cuttings I had taken.
One of these was Plectranthus purperea. I had not heard of this before but, seeing it in the garden from where the course was held, I loved the dark foliage.
It is not a hardy plant in the uk, in fact it is more a house plant, which as probably why I had not come across it before as I am not a fan, nor have the room for many house plants.
The cuttings grew well over the summer and looked lovely in their pots in the garden.
In October I took some more cuttings ready for next year and as insurance in case the main plant does not survive the winter. Also brought the plant inside.
Now it has pretty white flowers which is a lovely surprise.
