A remarkable foliage plant with a soft and alluring presence, ‘Longwood Silver’ is equally suited to the border or container. It quickly develops felted, silvery leaves that become greenish gray and more textured with age. Intriguing fuzzy stems seem to glow with a purplish hue that’s echoed in the terminal flower panicles.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 2' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 8.

Plectranthus  Zulu Wonder

With decoratively toothed margins and prominent veins, thick rounded green foliage flaunts sumptuous dark reddish purple flipsides, while the same rich hue suffuses the succulent stems, long leaf petioles and midribs. The stunning foliar contrast is reason enough to plant this south African beauty, but the delightful late season showing of speckled dark lilac flowers on long spires makes it indispensable.

Blooms August–October.

Size: 10" high x 18"–2' 0" wide; hardy to zone 9.

Customer Comment:

“Surfing the web for a special plant, I chanced on Digging Dog Nursery. I thought that any nursery that could create an Egyptian Gothic out of Anubis must have some pretty cool things going for it. I was right, and my first order was a pleasure. Well packed, healthy plants and extremely appealing people on the other side of the screen.”
