Coleus is grown for its brilliant, glowing foliage rather than flowers. This is an outstanding mixture formulated to provide the best and brightest colors of medium-sized leaf varieties. Spectacular for beds and borders. Favorites during the Victorian period, they have made a dramatic comeback. It s easy to see why: no other plant offers such a dazzling variety of leaf colours, shapes, and patterns, and no other plant is so easy to grow. The Rainbow variety is one of most popular of coleus. This very special blend includes a complete colour range, from cream to deep scarlet. Very easy to grow from seed and of even height, growth and size of leaves. Given a modicum of care, they will flourish from spring until frost. With their sumptuous colours and tough constitution, coleus are ideal both as attention-getting focal points and as complements to other foliage or flowering plants. They will show their first colours in as little as two weeks. The intensity of light which the plant receives will have a direct bearing on the intensity of the foliage coloring. Some varieties of coleus may produce their best colour in light shade, while others look best in bright lighting. As happy in a container as in open ground, they are the ultimate in versatility, their uses as unlimited as your imagination. Common name(s): coleus Flower colours: red, rose, pink, maroon, salmon, buff, peach, yellow, green and creamy white.
