Coleus

Coleus is ideal for anyone who wants color in a hurry, whether in the garden, patio or house. There is no need to wait for the bloom on this plant because the color is in the beautiful, showy foliage. Coleus colors can range from red, green, purple or violet. It is a versatile and a vigorous plant that can be grown year round. It adjusts beautifully to life in pots, planters, flower beds or borders. The 'Kong' varieties are great for shady areas. Many growers will often pinch the non-showy blooms off to redirect the plants energy to the attractive foliage.
