Flowering Coleus, Rainbow Mix
The coleus is an easy, colorful perennial to grow in any home garden. It is known for its attractive and dramatic leaves, ranging in colors from bright red, green, yellow, purple, and more! A perfect container plant for your summer lanai.
Days to Maturity: 40-50 days
Plant size: 12-24” tall, a bit smaller if kept in a container
Plant spacing: 18-24” apart
Sun, soil, and water requirement: Sun with afternoon shade or lots of bright indirect light. In cooler, humid climates, full sun will bring out the best foliage color and make sturdy plants. They love water and rich, well-draining soil.
Pruning: The beauty is in the leaves. Pinch off flower spikes to help keep plants bushy and strong. The flowering cycle takes lots of plant energy away from the plant.
Companion planting: Coleus have similar needs as ferns, so let them hang out!
