The Burgundy Sun Coleus is a low-maintenance annual that is highly resistant to serious disease or insect problems so it requires little or no pesticide to stay healthy. Attractive burgundy foliage displays its beautiful color from mid-spring to fall. Great in containers or planted in masses. This variety can handle full sun to moderately shady conditions and needs a well-drained soil, but their colors are most vivid in bright sun. Some gardeners leave the small flowers, but it's best to pinch them off to direct more energy into stem and foliage growth.
