Coleus is most known for its bright, colorful, attractive foliage. Also known as Painted Nettle and Poor Man's Croton, Coleus' colored foliage comes in shades of bright green, deep maroon, and vibrant pink. Suitable for garden beds or containers. It is a durable, easy plant to grow. As long as Coleus receives sufficient light and food, it should flourish.
The large serrated leaves create an exotic effect in shade beds because of its unique red hue that transitions to deep purple on the edges. Excellent in pots.
