Plectranthus VELVET™ ‘Starlet’

TERRA NOVA®'s most exciting Plectranthus to date. It has the most perfect, natural semi-dwarf habit, that doesn't require pinching and PGRs. 'Starlet' sports a never before seen color that lights up a summer and fall garden like nothing else. Tones of bright rose, pure pink and violet are layered upon each other giving a stunning effect. Trusses of tubular flowers are held perfectly above the purple-backed foliage and never look stretchy.
