Coleus in every color you can imagine

The Victorians were coleus addicts—so much so that, at the height of this plant's popularity, there was said to be a "coleus craze" sweeping the populace. Looking at these reselected varieties from the heyday of the coleus craze, it's easy to see why they were so popular.

In this Giant Exhibition™ Complete Mix Coleus you get large foliage on small plants. Most of the leaves are 6 to 7 inches long and 4 inches wide, yet the plants are very compact—approx. 12 to 15 inches high and wide. They arise in all the colors for which coleus is known—burgundy, scarlet, maroon, bronze, cream, pink, and white—and sporting interesting touches, such as neatly-serrated edges or dramatic veining. You will love these old-fashioned beauties, reselected for modern vigor and terrific garden or container performance.

Originally selected as houseplants, Giant Exhibition™ Complete Mix Coleus is also a fine specimens in the shade garden, and is just the right size for containers. Giant Exhibition™ Complete Mix Coleus is also fabulous in a mass planting.

Giant Exhibition™ Complete Mix Coleus germinates readily and grows eagerly. For bushier, fuller plants, keep the growing tips pinched. To extend the lush color into fall, remove any stray flower spikes that emerge—they take energy away from maintaining the gorgeous foliage, and the flowers are insignificant. If growing Giant Exhibition™ Complete Mix Coleus in the garden, sow about 12 inches apart. If growing indoors for houseplants, sow at any time, placing the young plants in a well-lit window.

I planted these seeds in March in those small greenhouse trays, in the soil pods. By the window these miniscule seeds became the cutest baby plants! 98% grew. And grew, and grew! Don't waste time, plant the babies into 8" pots! I now have 18 plants about 26" wide and 30" tall! In the most beautiful colors greens and pinks and rufflesI live in a jungle, I have given several away and my friends killed them. As soon as they start to wilt water with luke warm water. They need light and to be turned 180 every time you water. This would be great for children to watch.

Good Variety

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

You'll get good variety if you have the room to plant nearly all of the seeds. I adore coleus so I always make sure I have plenty of room to start several of them. They always seem to get big & lush and rather tall. I love them and I get tons of compliments on them.
