This low maintenance plant has heart-shaped variegated leaves. In the spring, the velvety foliage starts off chartreuse in colour and then becomes a darker green with scalloped lemon-yellow edges. It is a sturdy, well-branched, mounding plant with a fragrant lemon scent. Good as a border plant, groundcover, or an accent “spiller” plant in baskets and planters. Also, Twisted Lemon can be grown as an indoor house plant.
