Besides its name, the thing I like most about this easy-to-grow coleus relative is its low mounding habit and the large amount of white in its leaves. Sometimes you need something low and white in the front of mixed beds and borders and this plant fits the bill perfectly. Mike’s Fuzzy Wuzzy Plectranthus also looks great in a mixed container as it will slightly spill over the edge. Its rounded and slightly scalloped densely-packed leaves are lightly aromatic and not fed upon by deer. This plant’s name honors two guys named Mike. They are, Mike Tully of Santa Barbara, CA and Mike Kartuz of Kartuz Greenhouses in San Diego.
