Go Back Coleus

Coleus

Plant Type: Annuals

This attractive foliage plant is great for containers and under planting. Although coleus will usually survive in sun, the color of the leaves is enhanced in the shade. Small, insignificant flowers will appear late summer. Pinch off blooms and growing shoots of young plants to encourage bushier foliage. It prefers moist but well drained soil. Common pests to watch for include mealy bug, aphids and white fly.
