Coleus Color Spectacular!
Coleus Color Spectacular!
What’s not to love about a genus that produces colors from gentle butter yellow to shocking magenta, with leaves that range in shape from simple ovals to frilly triangles—especially when coleus plants are so easy to grow that each pot should bear the slogan, “Just add water”? In fact, with the wide range of selections available, the most difficult part of growing coleus is choosing one.
Coleus have historically been considered shade plants, and most benefit from protection from mid-day sun. Coleus grown in full sun need to be watered often to look their best, especially on windy days. Pinch stem tips if you want to control the height and increase bushiness. Remove flower shoots as they appear. The coleus below are the best at tolerating full sun
