Red Sun Coleus

Red Sun Coleus

If you think only flowers make a big impact in the garden, think again: with Bonnie Plants® Red Coleus, your sunny or shady spaces will glow with gorgeous color. This no-fuss, workhorse-of-a-plant thrives no matter where you need it, growing beautifully in full sun or full shade. The stunning, deep red, serrated leaves stay vibrant in full sun: it’s the only true-red coleus that’s fully sun-tolerant, with no color fading, bleaching, or spotting. Red Coleus flowers six weeks later than other varieties, so the plants stay tidy in garden beds and containers. Pinch off the insignificant flowers to direct the plant’s energy into creating big, beautiful leaves. The velvety-red foliage looks stunning planted in masses in the landscape or featured in a pretty container combination with flowering annuals and perennials. Tuck the leaves into a floral bouquet to complement bright blooms. Rich, red foliage creates a dramatic splash of color in dark, shady spaces, too. You’ll love the many uses for this terrific, multipurpose plant in your garden.

Plant Red 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!
