The best for bedding and small containers | Never needs pinching

If you like your coleus compact, bushy, and full of vibrant color, let me introduce you to Wizard® Mix Coleus, the best for bedding and containers. These seedlings will never need pinching, but will grow naturally close-to-the-ground, beautiful little plants just waiting to show off in your shady garden and best indoor and outdoor containers.

The Wizard® Mix Coleus consists of 8 varieties (with an equal amount of seed of each, what's called a "formula mix") that all reach the same size at the same time. Terrific for a large planting or for the sheer variety of houseplants, outdoor containers, and bedding combos you will enjoy. From brilliant apricot Sunset to red-veined velvet red, each of the varieties in this mix is a distinctive work of art.

Collection Includes:
Coral Sunrise
Velvet Red

What all the Wizards do have in common is compact size, 10 to 12 inches high, 8 to 10 inches wide, and neatly serrated edges, giving even an informal planting a trim, stylish look. They are just right for containers of all kinds, edging, and the front of shady beds and borders.

The Wizard® Mix Coleus does best in part to full shade and moist, well-drained soil enriched with organics. (If growing in containers, give the plants a light feed every few weeks.) Wizard® Mix Coleus shows its color early, never needs pinching to reach that bushy, symmetrical, low-growing form, and keeps its hues right through the worst summer heat and humidity. You can't go wrong with this showstopper.

Wizard® Mix Coleus germinates readily and grows eagerly. 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 not particularly attractive. And although Wizard® Mix Coleus is a formula mix, remember that you might not get all 8 colors from every packet. The seed is mixed before it is packaged. The more you buy, the greater the chances of the widest range of varieties.

To grow Wizard® Mix Coleus in the garden, sow the seeds about 6 to 8 inches apart or begin them indoors in your Bio Dome or seed flat. The seeds need light to germinate, and will sprout in about 7 to 10 days. Transplant them when the seedlings have at least 2 sets of true leaves (about 8 weeks after sowing). If growing indoors for houseplants, sow at any time, and place the plants in bright, indirect sunlight.

I think I got 7 of 8

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I got 2 packs of 40 seeds. I'm sure there were a few extra in each pack. I planted all the seeds. They are so tiny once they hit the soil you can't see them. As a result some landed on the edge of the pod. I got germination within a few days in my covered seed tray using a plant light 16 hours a day and undermat heater. Overall I got about 78 plants now so a very good percentage. I am not sure what to do with all of them now that I've potted each one in a 4.5 inch pot. probably give some to some friends. This is my first time planting anything so it was kind of exciting. I marked down a star because I don't know that I got all 8 varieties and the colors are not as intense as the photos shown. Overall pretty happy and would recommend to a friend.

Super easy to grow

This shopper rated the product 5 out of 5 stars

The seeds are tiny, but are so easy to grow. I started them inside and they all sprouted quickly. The colors are very nice.

pretty seedlings

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

This is the first year I bought this mix. I got four different varieties in the seedlings. It was great fun waiting to see what they would be and all four varieties are very pretty. I did have a low germination rate which surprised me. I usually have very high rates with Park's. In general, however, I am very happy with the mix. Next time I will just plant two packages. I am planning on growing them in pots with the Black Dragon coleus. I think that will be a very nice combo.

Nice standard size coleus

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I planted spring 2011 and overwintered a couple of my favorites indoors and they're doing great in the garden and pots in 2012. These are not the giant size and consequently have a better shape to plant well spaced apart. I too failed to get the full spectrum of colors that another reviewer mentioned but intend to reorder as I tried a packet from a local garden center and it completely lacked variety of colors.

Love this product, but image is not accurate

This shopper rated the product 4 out of 5 stars

I buy these seeds every two to three years. The vast majority sprout and I have so many seedlings I do not know what to do with them all (I only have an apartment balcony). The plants do well in partial shade to practically full shade. Indoors they even do well under the grow lamp which is practically full sun. I cut them back slightly each year and they come back for quite a number of years. I do not let them flower which takes energy away from the plants. I have many compliments for these plants. My only issue is that I never get all the color varieties pictured in the photo. I get dark red, dark pink edged in lime green, lime green with spots or streaks of red, medium pink centers with wide lime green border. Sometimes a yellow centered seedling sprouts but I have yet to have it grow to maturity. Therefore I have never seen the orange or black leaves with red centers that are in the photo. I will continue to buy this item, but do not count on orange, yellow, or black leaves.
