The Vicks plant, is a rare succulent perennial herb cascading herb, perfect for hanging baskets!  It is named for it's relaxing menthol fragrance synonymous with the vapor rub. Vicks' bright green velvety foliage has a minty, menthol aroma, and when when crushed can be inhaled (or steamed) to clear congestion.
