Dramatic color for your container, garden bed or home

The Coleus Dark Star, 'Coleus hybrid', has dark purple foliage that glows with a subtle sheen, and features a nicely shaped scalloped edge. These new, bigger, sun loving varieties have revolutionized contanier gardening. The brilliant colors explode in sunny locations. Coleus plants are durable and easy to grow.

 Coleus plants are so colorful that many people keep them and use them as a house plant. These plants will do best in temperatures above 55 degrees. Flower buds should be pinched off as soon as they develop. If a coleus plant is allowed to seed, it has completed its life cycle and will die. Coleus must have good soil drainage to avoid "wet feet" damage. For zones 10-11, this plant can also be a perennial.
