Vicks Plant
Plectranthus purpuratus
Uses: Medicinal/Aromatic Duration: Perennial (hardy in zones 11+)
Produces a scent surprisingly similar to the familiar chest cold remedy, Vicks VapoRub, and can be used just the same! Typically used topically for muscle soreness, chest complaints and bug bites. Aroma is so strong it has also been used to ward off mosquitoes. Can also be made into an inhalation steam bath by infusing leaves in boiling water. A succulent like herb that makes a great, low maintenance indoor houseplant in winter while enjoying the outdoors in summer! Has thick velvety coated leaves. Looks great in hanging baskets as it has a cascading growth habit. Plant in well drained soil and only water every week or so. Height 24 inches.
