Vicks Plants

Plectranthus tomentosa

Another wonderful herb to add to our 'rare and unusual' collection! Vick's plant (also known as Succulent Coleus) is a hard to find herb is a tender perennial with a nice spreading habit. Compact with a loving cascading growth habit, it is a great choice for hanging baskets and containers.

The oval leaves are rounded and fleshy, and give off the aroma of Vick's Vapor Rub when rubbed or crushed. This strong menthol odor does a good job at repelling mosquitoes. This succulent herb is a must for attracting bees and butterflies. Easy to propagate, and blooms in early spring and early fall. Because of its fleshy leaves, be careful not to over water.

My FAVORITE plant! June 3, 2019
Reviewer: Chris Scruggs from Muncy, PA United States  
I love this plant!! It arrived very healthy, and a lot larger than I expected. The smell to me, is like a sweet Vick’s smell. It just makes me happy to smell it. I was able to even root an off branch of it for my office.  In a short time, it’s grown into a cute, little potted desk plant. Recommended!

Better than Vapo Rub April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Lawrence from Hackensack from Hackensack, NJ United States  
A charming, refreshing olfactory experience. Very easy to grow succulent. Visitors are attracted by the form and the invitation to sniff and guess a name.

All my plants died April 30, 2019
Reviewer: Luisa Sierra from Bridgeport, CT United States  
I purchased 3 vick’s Plant. Rue plant and a patchouli plant and they all died. They were limp when I transplanted them and where dead within a few days.  It was more than likely something I did. I plan to repurchase the Vick’s plant but in warmer weather. Hopefully I can still get them.
