|Plectranthus (coleus) caninus|
Plectranthus caninus is an herb in the mint family Lamiaceae, native to east Africa and southern Asia. Under the name "Coleus canina", it is sold and marketed as a natural repellent to cats and dogs (labeled as "Scaredy Cat Plant" and "Piss-off plant"), though no research currently exists that supports that usage. These plants root easily from cuttings or from just touching the ground. They like full sun.
