Add a splash of colour with this striking foliage plant. Bright, pink leaves with a green to purple shadow bleeding in from the serrated edges.

With their wide colour range and ease of care, it is hard not to love Coleus. Their brilliant colour range will add a little excitement wherever you plant them. They are great plants to mix and match in either a pot or frost free garden. Low maintenance and quick to establish.

Coleus make beautiful, bushy evergreen pops of colour. They are fabulous house plants, thriving in a bright light position. In warm climates they can be grown outdoors in full sun to part shade adding lovely bright colour year round.

Coleus, or Solenostemon originate in the tropics of Asia and Africa so should be sheltered in cool climates (or treated as annuals outdoors).

Water to establish then keep moist in active growth, they become dry tolerant once established. Pinch out flowers to promote foliage growth. As these are Sun Coleus, you will get the best foliage colour with bright light. In a solo pot 20cm is the ideal size to have it spilling from the edges.

Coleus is one common name, another is Painted Nettle or Sun Coleus.
