Coleus Kong® Empire Mix

Coleus  KO-lee-us

Kong® Empire Mix:  Kong® Empire coleus is the king this season.  The enormous leaves grow up to 6 in. wide and are dramatically marked. Plants are vigorous, mounding and well-branched up to 24 in. tall. Kong Empire Mix prefers more shade than most coleus as the extra-large leaves can burn in hot sun. Beautiful in beds, borders and large containers.

Coleus  KO-lee-us

Coleus plants are grown for foliage colors and textures. The variety in patterns is amazing with solid colors, splashes, blotches, streaks, flecks, margins and veins. Leaf textures include, large, small, twisted, elongated, scalloped, lobed and finger-like. Excellent in both beds and baskets in part sun to full shade. Coleus varieties are considered relatively common plants that usually work well as “filler” in gardens or containers. Outdoors, you can place your coleus almost anywhere, including shade gardens, patio planters, hanging baskets and more. Gardeners tend to agree that their Coleus looks best before they bloom, so pinching off any flowers as they appear has good results. Fertilize with well-balanced fertilizer to keep it growing happily in containers.
