Common Name: Coleus
Species name: Coleus scutellarioides
Temperature: Coleus come from a tropical climate and need warm temperatures to thrive. Do not plant outdoors until temperatures are reliably above 60 degrees at night. Optimal temperature range for coleus is 70°F to 100°F.
Hardiness: Tender perennial generally grown as an annual in the USA. Coleus will not survive a frost.
Exposure: Part sun or high shade for best color. Some coleus tolerate full sun. Harden off new arrivals before planting.
Water: Keep evenly moist. Avoid soggy soil with good drainage. Do not allow to get completely dry.
Fertilizer: Fertilize regularly at half-strength or use timed-release fertilizer.
Soil: Use high-quality potting soil or plant in garden soil rich in organic matter.
Blooms: Flower spikes in shades of purple and blue. Keep flower buds pinched since unchecked blooming will cause the plant to go into decline.
Spacing: 8"-15" in garden beds, pots and baskets can be planted more densely.
Ships as: Single or multi-branched starter plant averaging 3" to 9" tall. Plant immediately on arrival.
