Shrub or Perennial ID Needed

This plant was part of a flower arrangement, and was in a container. It appears to be a woody perennial or shrub, but I can't tell what it is. The stems and leaves are fuzzy. The undersides of the leaves are almost maroon. Any ideas are appreciated!

It really reminds me of plectranthus .

Did it have lavender flowers?


RE: Shrub or Perennial ID Needed

If it's woody then I'd guess a type of Hibiscus.

RE: Shrub or Perennial ID Needed

Looks like Plectranthus 'Mona Lavender' to me.

RE: Shrub or Perennial ID Needed

Thanks everyone! I do think that it is Plectranthus. It hasn't flowered yet but if I recall, last season it did have some lavender flowers.
