Planting and care

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.
