Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
Discourage feline intruders with the scented foliage of Coleus canina - Cats and Dogs hate the smell! Luckily it is not offensive to humans. The neat grey green leaves and small pale blue flowers make this an attractive addition to borders too. At its most effective when grown in full sun, the scardy cat plant (as it is also known) is undemanding and surprisingly drought tolerant. Height: 45cm (18"). Supplied as 40mm plug plants.
