Planting and care

  • Where the growing season is long, pinch the tips of the stems regularly to encourage branching and compact growth.
  • When growing coleus, keep in mind that these beauties can grow rapidly.
  • Plant coleus closes together as bedding plants or stuck them into baskets and containers for a fast growing and spectacular addition.
  • Another factor in coleus care is overwintering, as these plants, which are considered tender annuals, are highly susceptible to cold temperatures.

    Coleus care

    Coleus plants should be grown in the garden in bright, indirect light, or in partial shade. The lower growing dwarf varieties (6-12 inch) will create a colourful border, or you can use the taller (up to 36") types as a dramatic background planting.

    Many Coleus plants will survive full sun exposure but the foliage colour is often enhanced when they are grown in the shade.
    Coleus are also quite striking when they are planted in a container and grown as a house plant.By removing the flower spikes as they develop, and keeping the plant pinched back, the Coleus can be kept growing as a perennial for several seasons.

    Sunlight Dappled or partial shade
    Watering Evenly moist soil but not soggy. Container plants also require more frequent watering than those grown in the garden.
    Soil Good quality soil mix.
    Temperature Average temperature is 90 degrees Fahrenheit.
    Fertilizer A balanced, water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks for plants in containers; in the ground, once a month is enough, with the fertilizer diluted to half-strength.
