Caring for Coleus Coerulescens

    Pinch just above a set of leaves or branching junction for the best appearance; don t leave a stub. Some gardeners leave the small flowers, but it s best to pinch them off to direct more energy into stem and foliage growth. Coleus left to flower may lose vigor as the plant puts energy into seed production.

Typical uses of Coleus Coerulescens

Special features: Borders, rock gardens, cottage gardens, open shade gardens, woodland gardens or naturalized areas. Also a good selection for a hummingbird garden. Continue to water plants after bloom to enjoy the ground cover effect of the foliage. Best in large clumps or massed.

Ornamental use: The plant is used for ornamental purpose.
