Red & Green Sun Coleus

Red & Green Sun Coleus

Sometimes the best addition to a garden isn’t a flower: it’s fabulous foliage! With Bonnie Plants® Red and Green Coleus, the unique, colorful foliage is the star of the garden: vibrant leaves sport purple centers, deep rose veining, and bright green scalloped margins that fill the landscape with color all summer long. This low-maintenance, gorgeous plant thrives no matter where you need it, growing beautifully in full sun or full shade. The kaleidoscope-like foliage with its upright, bushy habit stays vibrant in sunny spaces without any fading. Plant masses of Red and Green Coleus in garden beds to complement blooms, or add it to shady spaces to brighten dark corners. Try combining it with flowering annuals or perennials for a spectacular container garden. The foliage makes a great addition to floral bouquets, too. Red and Green Coleus flowers six weeks later than other varieties, so the plants stay neat in garden beds and containers. Pinch off the insignificant flowers to direct the plant’s energy into creating big, beautiful leaves. Who says flowers should star in beautiful garden designs when Red and Green Coleus makes such a spectacular show?

Plant Red and Green Coleus in well-drained, evenly moist soil and feed with Miracle-Gro® Plant Food at planting. Water when the top inch of soil feels dry to the touch. Use mulch to help retain moisture in the soil. For best results, add high-quality Bonnie Plants® live plant coleus to your garden instead of growing from seed for an instant addition of color and brightness. Your garden will be off to a great start!
