Coleus – Unmatched Versatility
A Super Plant
This is a great plant with endlessly colorful foliage all season. Diverse colors, leaf shapes, growing habits make it a great plant for containers or the landscape. Our coleus are sun lovers and can be used in shady areas to add color. Tall or short, narrow, bushy or trailing, there is a coleus for your garden!
Traditionally grown for shade, new varieties tolerate sunny spots quite well. They prefer evenly moist soil and can be pinched throughout the growing season to encourage new growth. Fertilize every 2-3 weeks or use a time release fertilizer if you wish.
Coleus blossoms are insignificant and can be removed so as not to take away from the beauty of the foliage. While neither unattractive or showy, the blooms are small and lavender in color and kinda cute!
We love this super plant because it doesn’t ask for much and puts on a great show all summer and into the fall. The reds, oranges, purples and greens in many different hues stand on their own compliment other plants .
Stop in this weekend and check out our coleus. They make a great addition to any garden. They are also very quiet and make good neighbors…
