Coleus have historically been considered shade plants, and most benefit from protection from mid-day sun. The coleus in this category are the best at tolerating full sun. Make sure to harden-off your coleus and acclimate them to full sun conditions before planting. (See our coleus care page for instructions.) Full sun conditions might alter the look of your coleus or cause damage to the leaf. Coleus grown in full sun need to be watered often to look their best, especially on windy days, so do not place them out of easy reach of the hose!
