Maintenance Notes: 

Many people feel that coleus look best before they flower. We have worked hard to choose coleus that bloom late in the season or not at all. To keep foliage in top shape, pinch off the blooms as they appear if you wish.

Rules of Thumb for Overwintering Plants Indoors:

1. Choose only healthy plants

2. Bring Plants indoors before frost damages foliage

3. Treat for disease and insects before bringing plants indoors

4. Place in bright areas and add humidity using pebble trays or spray bottles

5. Be careful not to over water

6 When active growth starts in spring fertilize and prune as needed

7. Introduce your plants slowly to outdoor conditions in spring

An application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

Caring, well-bred, 18-24 inch tall Colorblaze Coleus enjoys part to full shade, movies, music, quiet times at home, butterflies, and hummingbirds. Seeks attractive pot or landscape for annual relationship, except in zones 10-11. Open to change of location from outside to indoors. For "the one" will permit pinching back of purple flowers. It takes all kinds.

Friends say I have a great sense of humor and my handsome, lobed, rounded leaves are my best feature. My colors are those of a desert sunset: bronze, orange, purple, rose pink, and maroon. The cooler it gets, the more intense I become. Perhaps you will understand why. I am sincere, tolerant of heat, and very undemanding. No games please.

  • Love this plant. It grows very well here in Southwest Florida and typically lives several years before needing to be replaced. With the evening sun shining through the trees, it really puts on a color show!

    Outstanding My favorite plant, I recommend to others all the time and explain the reasons why I like it so much.

  • This plant is- hands down- the backbone of my annual flower pots. I pair it with black sweet potato vine (among other annuals) and it is absolutely gorgeous. The color is striking and utterly unique, and the vigor is just wonderful. The only problem I've ever had with it is I sometimes have trouble finding it at our local nursery! There isn't another plant in my gardens- annual or perennial- that I love and depend on as much as this one. Please don't stop growing it!!!

  • This is most beautiful and unique variety of Coleus I have ever grown. The color of the leaves (both front and back) is absolutely spectacular! I used it in a container planting. I will definitely be growning this variety again next year.

  • Fabulous coleus in sun or shade. As the weather cools, the colors intensify. Now in November it positively glows.

  • I haven't met a coleus I don't like. I use them extensively in perennial beds to fill in. They grow fast and big. Since I'm into sunset colors, I espcially like 'Sedona.'
