    With its attractive, scalloped foliage that's green with white margins, Plectranthus coleoides 'Variegata' makes a worthy filler plant in a container or in the garden. It grows about a foot tall and half again as wide. It's a Proven Winners selection so it's widely available. NGA (National Gardening Association)

    • Not only is this plant beautiful and easy-care, it releases a heavenly citrus-woodsy aroma when brushed. I over-winter it in a hanging pot by a south-facing window.

    • This is one of my favorite plants. Unfortunately every garden center I have been to in my area does not carry this plant. I had two giant pine trees growing out of my deck, which were cut down with the stumps of 3 1/2 feet left in place. I have two very large round containers sitting on the top of the stumps, and I planted this Swedish ivy in these containers. They grew so beautifully trailing down the stumps, and you couldn't even tell the stumps were there. It was absolutely stunning. I was extremely disappointed this year in not being able to find these plants. PLEASE, is there anyone in my area that carries this ivy.
