Absolutely love to get in the garden when I can. Love birds, fish and plants. I live in the heart of Sydney suburbia on an average block of land

Is that Plectranthus verticillatus? (Swedish ivy / Swedish begonia / whorled plectranthus) #plectranthus

@suerichards the leaves have a spicy scent but the flowers don't smell

@brightcolours I think it is plectranthus verticillatus but not absolutely sure. The leaves have burgundy underside.

It’s #weedy in SE Queensland and is surprisingly hard to eradicate... https://keyserver.lucidcentral.org/weeds/data/media/Html/plectranthus_verticillatus.htm

“Some of the stems and underside of the leaves were purple in colour but as the plant grew in more bright light, the colouring disappeared.” www.greenobsessions.com/swedish-ivy/

Do you cut it back regularly or just at the end of flowering?

#brightcolours after it flowers and mid spring and mid summer. That helps it to branch 🌿 and put on loads of flowers 💐
