Ballerina Spurflower Overview
Plectranthus reflexus, or the ballerina spurflower, is a semi-succulent upright herbaceous perennial. It is family of the aromatic rosemaries and mints. The grey stems are swollen towards the base with relatively few branches, giving a sparse appearance. An abundance of flowers during Autumn on the stem ends make this useful in the shade garden areas.
