Size: 2"

Introducing the Plectranthus neochilus 'Lobster Flower', a unique and vibrant addition to any succulent collection. Native to the rocky slopes and cliffs of southern Africa, this hardy plant is known for its distinctive lobster claw-shaped flowers, which bloom in shades of deep purple and blue, adding a splash of color to your garden or home. The foliage is equally attractive, with fuzzy, aromatic leaves that are a soft shade of green, edged with hints of purple when exposed to full sun.

Growing to a modest size, the 'Lobster Flower' typically reaches up to 12 inches in height and spreads outwards, creating a lush, ground-cover effect. This plant is an excellent choice for xeriscaping, rock gardens, or as a border plant, thanks to its drought-resistant nature. In containers, it presents a striking “filler” element, its unique flowers cascading over the sides.

Aside from its visual appeal, the 'Lobster Flower' is prized for its ease of care. Thriving in well-draining soil and requiring minimal water once established, it's a perfect choice for gardeners of all skill levels. While it prefers full sun to partial shade, it's remarkably adaptable and can tolerate a range of light conditions.

The aromatic leaves of the Plectranthus neochilus 'Lobster Flower' are not just a delight to the senses; they also serve to repel unwanted insects, making it a functional as well as beautiful addition to your outdoor space. Whether planted in masses for a dramatic effect or used as a standalone specimen, the 'Lobster Flower' is sure to captivate and charm all who encounter it.


Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2", 2.5", 3", 4" etc), not the plant itself. Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grow in depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors. Please note that we ship our plants as dry as possible in the fall and winter months to prevent root rot or freezing. They will plump back up after planting!
