    Hello, under the covid restrictions I find myself with time for things I don't ever get too. I was gifted this plant years ago, and I have never had anyone be able to identify it for me. If anyone would be able to help me, I would very much appreciate it. Thank you, Adam.

    Looks like it might be a plectranthus. I am having trouble seeing an individual flower within the group in your image.

    Here are a few better pictures, I really appreciate the help. I have had this plant for 7+ years now, flowers close to year round when it's happy. Very curious as is everyone who see it.

    Take a look at Plectranthus saccatus and see how your plant compares.

    It always cheers me up to see plants so well taken care of. It must be very happy, 7+ years indoors and going strong and in flower! Thanks for posting.

    I be looked real hard and I think it is a plectranthus saccatus or stoep jaccaranda thank you very much. And while I have had this plant 7+ years, the woman who gave it to me had it 15+ years before me.
