This Sun Lover Delivers a Coloful Impact

The Coleus Sky Fire, 'Coleus hybrid', has intense purple and scarlet foliage with ruffled brilliant lime green edges. 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. The coleus plants are a tender perennials. Frost will cause them to die immediately.

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. Poorly drained soils and excessive watering will damage coleus. Plants suffering from "wet feet" will be stunted, leaves will turn a muddy brown, and leaf margins will be scorched.

* Can be a perennial in zones 10-11
* Also used as a house plant
* Thrives in full sun
