Plectranthus rotundifolius


Plectranthus  rotundifoliusCommon Name: African Potato
Description
Plectranthus rotundifolius or Solenostemon rotundifolius, commonly known as native or country potato in Africa and called “Chinese potato” in India is a perennial herbaceous plant of the mint family (Lamiaceae) native to tropical Africa. It is cultivated for its edible tubers primarily in West Africa, as well as more recently in parts of Asia, especially India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, and Indonesia.
P. rotundifolius is closely related to the coleus plants widely cultivated as ornamentals and is often classified as a member of the genus Solenostemon rather than Plectranthus. It was formerly placed in the now-defunct genus Coleus, most of whose members have now been re-assigned to the genus Solenostemon. . . . .Read more
