Welcome to Rosy Dawn Gardens!

Rosy Dawn Gardens is closed for the 2024 season. All varieties of Coleus will be listed as "Sold Out" until December 1, 2024 when our 2025 Online Catalog goes live. Please stop back and visit us in December! Thank you to all our Customers for making 2024 another successful season for Rosy Dawn Gardens!

Rosy Dawn Gardens is a family-owned, mail-order retail nursery that specializes in colorful coleus starter plants for the home gardener. Coleus are not a sideline for us. Coleus are all we grow! We have over 200 different varieties from which you may choose. Coleus are a tender perennial grown for their beautiful foliage and are usually treated as an annual in the U.S. Since they don't depend on flowers for color, coleus will brighten your garden or patio all summer long. Whether you are into container and patio gardening or growing beautiful garden beds - you have come to the right place!

About Our Plants

Our plants are healthy and well rooted in a 1.5" x 2" deep plug surrounded by biodegradable fabric. The height of our coleus at shipping time varies according to the variety and ship date, and usually they are between 3" and 12" tall. Sizes are similar to what you would purchase in a 3" to 4" pot in a nursery. 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. At shipping time, each plant is rolled into its own cardboard tube so it arrives at your doorstep in perfect condition. We have been successfully shipping coleus this way since we opened 20 years ago. Live arrival is guaranteed! If for some reason your package is delayed or damaged and your coleus do not survive the journey, we will re-ship your order at no cost to you.
