MONA LAVENDER is a vigorous, upright, rounded, bushy perennial
that typically grows up to 2’ tall and as wide. Unlike many members
of the genus Plectranthus, this hybrid is in fact primarily grown for its
attractive lavender flowers which appear over a long bloom period.
Easily grown in humusy, medium moisture, well-drained soils in part
shade. Best with regular and even moisture. Year-round temperatures
of 60-80 F. Tubular, two-lipped, lavender flowers bloom in spikes to
6” long. Glossy, ovate, dark green leaves are purplish below.
Trim off new stem tips regularly to retain compact shape and form.
Remove flower spikes after bloom. Showy bloom sprays a top rich
dark green leaves with purple undersides.
Excellent heat and drought tolerance. Performs in baskets, borders,
patio containers or as a houseplant. An excellent accent from spring
to fall, often perennial in frost-free areas.
Water thoroughly, then allow the top 1 in (2.5 cm) to dry out between
