Coleus is an annual with varieties far and wide. The color variegations and patterns are endless, making it a coveted herbaceous plant for the garden. There are sun and shade coleus, but here in Oklahoma if they get a little more shade that’s just fine. The sunnier side of things will grow and thrive, but may require a little more water in the hot summer months.
Most varieties display teardrop shaped leaves with some serrated edges. Slender stalks protrude from the foliage, sporting small flowers. Depending on preference the flower stalks can be cut back to promote more plant growth. These serve as excellent backdrops for lower growing plants and focal points in garden beds and containers.
