Coleus Splish Splash®

Coleus  KO-lee-us

Proven Winners Splish Splash®:              

Splish Splash Coleus’ attractive serrated pointy leaves remain green in color with showy crimson variegation throughout the year. This is a relatively low maintenance plant. The flowers of this plant actually detract from its ornamental features, so they should be removed as they appear. Deer don’t particularly care for coleus and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.

Description

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.
