Plectranthus parviflorus, known as little spurflower or cockspur flower, is a shrub, occurring in Hawaii, Polynesia and Australia. Non aromatic, between 10 and 70 cm high. The habitat is shady moist areas, including eucalyptus forest and rainforest.
Plectranthus parviflorus is a spreading herbaceous perennial plant producing a cluster of erect succulent stems that can become more or less woody at the base. It grows from a small, tuberous rootstock. When grown at lower elevations in good soils the plant can be up to 100 cm tall, but is more likely to be about 20 cm tall when grown in poorer soils and higher elevations. The plant is cultivated in some parts of tropical Asia and Africa for the edible tubers. It is sometimes grown as an ornamental.
