Coleus is a former genus of flowering plants in the family Lamiaceae. In recent classifications, the genus is no longer recognized, and the formerly included species are instead placed in the genera Plectranthus and Solenostemon.
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 colors, shapes, and patterns, and no other plant is so easy to grow.
Planting and care
The coleus seeds required Moist, well-drained soil with a pH of 5.6 – 7.5.
Sunlight: Full Shade, Part Sun
Soil: Moist, well-drained, pH 5.6 – 7.5
Water: Keep soil moist.
Fertilizer: Fertilise with a diluted (50% mix) liquid fertilizer, too much feeding with high nitrogen fertilizers, encourages soft growth and poorer quality foliage.
