Plant Description

It is an attractive herbaceous perennial with variegated fragrant leaves in the Lamiaceae family. The leaves emit a mild citrus fragrance when bruised.  In cold climates, it is typically grown as a container annual. Swedish Ivy is an upright-spreading tender perennial that grows to 25 cm tall and spreads up to 3 ft wide. Creamy white or pale pink flowers appear on reddish upright stems that trail with age. Flowers are tubular, strongly two-lipped, not particularly showy. Marginatus is a variegated cultivar that is particularly noted for its attractive leaves. This bushy plant has thick stems that grow upright at first, then trail over the sides of a container. It is suitable for a hanging basket to show off its thickly leaved cascading stems.

Planting And Care


  • It grows well in bright direct sunlight.


  • Soil should be well drain and porus.
