Licorice Plant

Attractive felted leaves bring a chartreuse glow to the garden. Plants form a low mound and stems cascade or spread to fill in nicely over the course of the summer, providing consistent color and texture to mixed containers, hanging baskets or at garden's edge. Combines equally well with vibrant colors or pastels. Foliage will be more lime-green and less yellow in shaded locations. Prefers well-drained soil.
