Grower Information:

Show-stopping colours…bold patterns…rich textures: Pro landscapers and gardeners love these centre stage varieties for their great looks and reliable performance in sunny gardens and patio planters. Our Premium Sun Coleus can tolerate full sun in regions of high relative humidity such as Hardiness Zones 9 and 10. Foliage will scorch in full sun with low relative humidity. All are suitable for shade.

  • Boldly patterned, multi-coloured foliage makes a great companion to our other “chocolate” coleus: Chocolate Mint and Dark Chocolate. 
  • Non-fading colour pattern: rose centre on each leaf is surrounded by deep mahogany and edged with green. 
  • Late flowering and dwarf size are adaptable to pack and pot programs. 
  • Performs well in planters and small gardens in sun and shade.
