Welcome to Rosy Dawn Gardens! We are a mail-order retail nursery that specializes in colorful Coleus plants suitable for container growing and garden beds in shade or sun. Coleus are grown for their beautiful foliage and are usually treated as an annual in the U.S., but they are actually a tender perennial. Since they don't depend on flowers for color, Coleus will brighten your garden or patio all summer long! Coleus are all we sell, so you can be sure that the utmost care is taken to give our Coleus exactly what they need to thrive! Our unique growing method allows us to provide a sturdy starter plant with a well-formed root system using a minimum amount of growing medium. This allows us to keep shipping costs down and pass the savings along to our customers. Whether you are into shade gardening, container and patio gardening, or growing beautiful garden beds - you have come to the right place!

Rosy Dawn Gardens is closed for the 2014 season! Our 2015 Online Catalog will be released on December 1, 2014. Please stop back and visit us in December!

Thank You to all of our customers for making 2014 another successful season for Rosy Dawn Gardens!
