Botanical name: Plectranthus fruticosus 'Liana'

Plectranthus fruticosus ‘Liana’, or Liana spurflower, produces clusters of blue-mauve flowers in autumn that attract bees and other pollinators. The leaves have a pungent smell that repels flies and other insects. Some people hang the branches around their homes or rub them on windowsills for this purpose. This plant is easy to grow from cuttings and prefers a semi-shaded spot with well-drained soil. It is also frost hardy and drought tolerant, making it a versatile and rewarding plant for any garden.
