Description for Coleus Rainbow Mixed

Coleus is grown for its brilliant, glowing foliage rather than flowers. This is an outstanding mixture formulated to provide the best and brightest colors of medium-sized leaf varieties. Spectacular for beds and borders. Favorites during the Victorian period, they have made a dramatic comeback. It s easy to see why: no other plant offers such a dazzling variety of leaf colours, shapes, and patterns, and no other plant is so easy to grow.

The Rainbow variety is one of most popular of coleus. This very special blend includes a complete colour range, from cream to deep scarlet. Very easy to grow from seed and of even height, growth and size of leaves. Given a modicum of care, they will flourish from spring until frost.

With their sumptuous colours and tough constitution, coleus are ideal both as attention-getting focal points and as complements to other foliage or flowering plants. They will show their first colours in as little as two weeks. The intensity of light which the plant receives will have a direct bearing on the intensity of the foliage colouring. Some varieties of coleus may produce their best colour in light shade, while others look best in bright lighting. As happy in a container as in open ground, they are the ultimate in versatility, their uses as unlimited as your imagination.

Planting and care

The coleus seeds required Moist, well-drained soil withpH 5.6 - 7.5.

SunlightSoilWaterTemperatureFertilizer
Full Shade, Part Sun Moist, well-drained, pH 5.6 - 7.5Keep soil moist.Coleus should be kept at a 15-20°C (60-70°F) over winter. They will survive down to 10°C (50°F) but only if kept dry.Losses to rot and fungal diseases are high if the plants are allowed to get cold and damp.Fertilise with a diluted (50% mix) liquid fertiliser, too much feeding with high nitrogen fertilisers, encourages soft growth and poorer quality foliage.

Caring for Coleus Rainbow Mixed

    Pruning
  • Pinch the centre stems out when the plants are 4 to 6 inches tall to induce bushier growth, and be sure to pick off the flower spikes as they form.
  • For a bushy plant Continue to pinch out new shoots. Coleus is very durable, so you can cut your plant back severely if needed (almost back to the soil level).

Typical uses of Coleus Rainbow Mixed

Special features: Coleus are eye-dazzlers, easy-going plants with impossibly colorful leaves. They’re magnificent on their own in a flower pot, and the flash of their foliage lights up a flower bed.

Coleus eventually produces woody stems and can be trained as standards. To do this, pinch out side-shoots and support the stem with a 3ft cane. When the plant reaches the desired height, pinch out the top shoot and keep removing lead shoots.
