|Back view (I can't explain why I didn't trim that one sky-high Salvia stem before I started taking pictures except to say I had no more time to fuss)|
In addition to the Plectranthus, I included:
- Coleonema pulchellum 'Sunset Gold,' aka Breath of Heaven
- Pentas lanceolata 'Kaleidoscope Appleblossom'
- Salvia leucantha, aka Mexican bush sage
|I grow Plectranthus 'Zulu Warrior' mainly for the foliage but, in fall, the flowers offer an added bonus|
|I also grow Coleonema 'Sunset Gold' mainly for the foliage but it does produce tiny pink flowers and the scent, when you run your hand along the foliage, is indeed heavenly|
|Pentas 'Kaleidoscope Appleblossom' has suddenly produced a healthy flush of bloom, although the flowers are somewhat smaller than they were earlier in the year|
|I added Salvia leucantha to accentuate the purplish tones of the Plectanthus|
The flowers sit on the dining room table in a vase I think I picked up during my college days.
Please visit Cathy at Rambling in the Garden to see her creation this week. A lot of other gardeners are joining in to flaunt their flora so, if you have a vase created from materials in your garden, link up!
