The plant that smells and can be used just like Vick's Vaporub!

A wonderful herb to add to your 'rare and unusual' collection! Vick's plant (also known as Succulent Coleus) is a hard to find herb is a tender perennial with a nice spreading habit. Compact with a loving cascading growth habit, it is a great choice for hanging baskets and containers.

The oval leaves are rounded and fleshy, and give off the aroma of Vick's Vaporub when rubbed or crushed. This strong menthol odor does a good job at repelling mosquitoes. This succulent herb is a must for attracting bees and butterflies. Easy to propagate, and blooms in early spring and early fall. Because of its fleshy leaves, be careful not to over water.
