GENERAL INFORMATION

  • Coleus is a genus of annual or perennial herbs or shrubs, sometimes succulent, sometimes with a fleshy or tuberous rootstock, found in the Old World tropics and subtropics.
  • Coleus is probably one of the easiest plants to grow and propagate.
  • In fact, the plants root so easily that you can even start cuttings in a glass of water.
  • They can also be propagated by seed indoors about 8-10 weeks prior to your last expected spring frost.
  • Coleus can be added to beds and borders for interest or grown in containers.
  • They need fertile, well-draining soil and usually perform best in areas with partial shade, though many varieties can also tolerate sun.
  • When growing coleus, keep in mind that these beauties can grow rapidly.
  • They can be position close together as bedding plants or tuck them into baskets and containers for a fast-growing and spectacular addition.
