About Coleus Plant
The bold and beautiful foliage of Coleus plant make them the center of attention no matter where they’re planted.
Coleus are one of the rare plants that are grown almost exclusively for colorful foliage. In this regard, they’re like crotons, but they’re smaller and perhaps somewhat easier to grow inside. Coleus are truly in their glory in masses their leaves are available in green, purple, orange, red, yellow, and in a striking array of patterns.
Coleus is also quite striking when they are planted in a container and grown as a house plant. By removing the flower spikes as they develop, and keeping the plant pinched back, the coleus can be kept growing as a perennial for several seasons.
