Info

An succulent herb called Cuban oregano that looks like coleus with its variegated leaves on stiff stems. In fact Coleus aromaticus is a synonym for this tender perennial, to 12-18" tall and wide, with rose colored flowers in spring, though grown primarily for the foliage. Sun to part shade with regular summer water. Frost hardy only to 20 °F, USDA zone 9, so either enjoy for the summer or use in a pot.
