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.

  • Unique and versatile tricolour pattern: iridescent chartreuse and deep burgundy hearts are splashed with chartreuse and green. The surprise: Up to 3% of plants can show primarily darker green/burgundy bicolour instead of chartreuse. 
  • Stable colour/pattern all season like similar vegetative varieties. 
  • Very late flowering for longer-lasting performance and holds very well in extreme weather.
