Plant ID requested

Jean HiddenSeptember 30, 2008

Hi all,

This plant is growing in the school garden, but I dont know if it is a weed or a good plant - can anyone help?

Thanks in advance!

Jean - I've never seen it before but it could be some form of Plectranthus. There's only a million or so species of them with new ones being discovered every day. The shiny leaves and the jointed stems make me think "Swedish Ivy" the most popular member of that genus.

Take a piece and try to root it in water. It looks like an obvious planting and looks healthy but has no evidence of flowers or seedpods. Either it's a juvenile or it has been cut back after early flowering.
