fall blooming annual


This plant is a stellar bloomer in late August and until frost. The growth is mounding and not very tall. I've overwintered it in a sunroom for years. The leaves are fleshy and edged in pink. I love the foliage all summer long. It divides easily. The stems will break easily when transplanting so it takes a month or so for it to fill the summer pot. Water requirements are normal, as in water when dry. Any ideas of what this little beauty is????

tntreeman writes: the flowers look like perhaps a Plectranthus variety but there are MANY MANY of them so i don't know the name but maybe that will point you in the right direction if nobody can identify it. i , too, will be interested in knowing what it is exactly Posted: 2:43 pm on August 28th
