Gardeners' Notes:

Positive jonivy On Jun 10, 2003, jonivy from South Pasadena, CA wrote:

Plectranthus amboinicus 'Wedgewood' is a sport from P. amboinicus 'Variegatus. Its pattern--a wide green margin surrounding a central yellow-tinted blaze--is one that we find repeatedly in several species in this genus; a "reversal" sport from a white-margined mutation. This mutation has occurred repeatedly at various times and places where 'Variegatus' has been grown, and it has been propagated and introduced by various nurseries under different names: 'Well-Sweep', 'Ochre Flame', 'Athens Gem', in additon to 'Wedgewood'. Its fragrance and taste are especially sweet--to my palate, the best of all the various forms of Plectranthus amboinicus.
