1 x Plectranthus (Coleus) Caninus Plant/Cuttings
Depending on stock I may send a few cuttings in place of a rooted plant. These can be pushed into soil and will take root very easily.

AKA Dogbane, Scaredy Cat Plant and Piss-off plant

  • Reputed to repel cats and dogs and has been used as a border plant. I must say that I have used it around my veggie patch and it does appear to work, so far no more cats using the area as a toilet.
  • Some say it has a disagreeable odour – I actually find the scent very pleasant :p
  • It is an attractive fleshy succulent with a sprawling habit. Best grown in containers as it is fast growing and may try to escape. Lavender coloured flowers appear from Spring.
  • The flowers also attract bees and other beneficial insects in to your garden.
  • Very drought hardy. Tolerates frost.
  • From my own research there is more than one type – I have a fleshy thicker leaf and a smaller thinner type, but still quite similar.
  • All plants are grown organically in Queensland Australia.

All plants are:

Sent bare-rooted.

Only sent Monday (All locations) or Tuesday (SEQ and Northern NSW).

Sent Internationally at your own risk. I pack carefully and send by courier but there is always a risk with shipping plants.

Please be aware of your local restrictions on importing plants, before purchasing.

Happy gardening 🙂
