I think I got this from you at the swap and the label was unreadable. Need to know so I can plant it!

Hey Shirley, sorry about the label. That's a Cat's Whiskers, Orthosiphon aristatus. It's supposed to be hardy to 20 deg., but here I loose them when the temp. gets below about 26 or 27 deg. They are very easy to start from cuttings.

Thanks so much for the quick response! Glad I asked, I won't plant it out at this point. I have a place winter over tender plants and I'll take some cuttings for insurance.
