Coleus Canina plant

Barbara Drewett asked 12 years ago

Have you ever heard of this plant and does it work, its supposed to deter cats and dogs as they dislike the smell of the plant. Do most garden centres sell it?

Coleus canina or Plectranthus caninus is sold for this purpose and some day it works and some say it does not.

It is a tender plant, not frst hardy, and therefore must be in a greenhouse or indoors in winter.
