Anyone have a cutting to spare or know of a vendor that carries it - other than the two that are listed here on Dave's
ISO Plectranthus tomentosa - Vicks rub plant
There was a "smelly" plectranthus with small fuzzy leaves on the "take it please" table at the swap... not sure if that was the one you're after... if so, I have a little one I've been tormenting for years, sort of forcing it to be a topiary. If we do that play date, remind me to give it to you!
Awww man...I should've checked. I put the full one I had yearS ago on the gift table. Leave it to me to give away something I'd want later...LOL I'll remind you...even a cutting would be nice
OK, the one I've been pruning back hard for years now is a different Plectranthus with a smaller leaf, not quite the same as the Vick's Plant at that link... but it still has a strong herbal scent, and it now has your name on it!
BTW, we thought of you Saturday at Green Springs when I learned about the Katsuma tree, whose leaves apparently smell like caramel in the fall. I bought 2 babies and will plant out the bigger one this fall... if it establishes, the other one (grown on in a pot) will be yours if you want it.
YUM...never heard of that tree before. Totally forgot about Green Springs :(
Jill - is your leaf variegated on your Plectranthus
No, just green. I had one with a larger, variegated leaf some years ago... hated the smell when I bumped against it, and although pretty it was hard to avoid brushing against, so I think it went home with Happy (bec. she actually liked the scent). That might have been the "Vick's Plant."
Ok...that was the one I had...the one with the variegated leaf and yes, I remember thinking the smell was over the top. Course now I want one to use medicinally...go figure
Well, I'll earmark mine for you, and you can use it any way you want! I might even water it this week. LOL
Oh if it was truly mine I can assure you it might not have been watered regularly LOL
