Emerald Lace Plectranthus

Emerald Lace Plectranthus also known as Candleplant or Spur Flower

This is one of my favorite foliage plants because you can use outdoors or indoors.. easy care too!

A popular houseplant, undemanding and looks great year around .. I know I have one in my patio.. It’s variegated heart shaped leaves are just beautiful on compact  plants.  you will notice that each leaf is veined in glimmering silver and the back side of the leaf if purple.

Emerald Lace is tolerant of drought and some neglect , it blooms in autumn with its long tampering spikes of spurred white flowers ., however I have mine blooming still in January..because it is in a cooler patio area .

You will definitely be pleased with this plant, as it’s foliage is beautiful  year around.

Content in part to full shade, this is a good choice for low-light settings from the dining room to the bathroom, where few other plants are happy.

I reward myself every year by using cuttings of this plant , to make more to share with others..

It is a must have plant to your collection.

Happy Gardening
