This old-fashioned plant is perfect for any shady spot. The heart-shaped leaves come in many bright colors, great for containers and borders. This plant evokes the spirit of Victorian gardens. Start inside and don’t cover seeds. Leaves are cooked in some Asian cultures.

What are the pros? Easy to grow, prolific

What are the cons? Too easy...

Review:

I love these plants! I have grown them as houseplants and put them outside, even in Mississippi summer heat. They just don't stop. They are easy to grow from cuttings to give away to friends. Gorgeous colors, I love the mix. My favorites are the red and green spotted ones as well as the ones with hot pink in the center. I will DEFINITELY keep growing these. They love morning sun and look gorgeous in the front yard.

What are the pros? Various colors

What are the cons? Slowpoke growers when young

Review:

I've grown coleus from seed for a few years now. Starting it from seed is fun because you never know what color each plant will be; however, patience is definitely required. Coleus can be a slow grower when young, but giving it low doses of fertilizer will help. When your coleus starts producing flower stalks, be sure to keep them pruned off to encourage the plant to continue to branching. If plants are allowed to flower, they stop growing. I once had a potted plant that got approximately two feet tall, and the leaves were quite huge! Crowding too many plants in a pot will also stunt their growth. You also should place them in places where they will not get the super hot afternoon sun, and keep them adequately watered. Tips: Coues is related to mint; notice the square stem. And you may notice a slight scent on your plants foliage. Coleus comes from hybrid origins, which is why seeds saved from a plant will not resemble the parent. Coleus is also easily rooted from broken-off branches!

What are the pros? Plant and forget

What are the cons? Slow at first to grow

Review:

Last year we ordered these seeds and started them indoors in April. They were slow to grow at first, but even as small plants they started having their stripes show on the leaves. We transplanted at the end of May, and they were slow at first from heavy rains but then took off during the summer. You really need to trim them back if you want a dense plant. Stood up against dry summer heat. We also shared the seeds with a neighbor who was able to grow 8 large plants indoors, she transplanted in late July outdoors. Her plants tripled in size. We are currently starting some indoors as houseplants and are keeping them next to our radiator to speed up germination. Once fall hit for our plants they really started to shine with the vibrant colors alongside our mums, sunflowers, clematis and zinnias. We got so many compliments on this variety of coleus that we will always buy these seeds.

What are the pros? Big pots, sun, heat

What are the cons? Too much heat, frost.

Review:

I grow these in 5 gallon pots on my back porch in Phoenix, Arizona. I have used seed starter mix and plain ordinary potting soil. They germinate quickly and grow fast. If the pot is big enough, the weather 75 and they get 5 hours of direct sun a day, they will easily grow 3 feet tall with huge beautiful leaves. If they get enough sunshine, they will be stout and strong, not at all spindly. They are rather large plants and don't grow well in smaller pots. Even a one gallon pot will stunt the plant. They like sunshine, and will be a bit spindly if you grow them in the shade or indoors. They grow best when the weather is between 80 and 100. When the temps exceed 100, they will slow down, maybe wilt a bit, but they always survive our Phoenix summer days of 110 day in and day out. They will survive winter unless it freezes - a frost will kill them. They eventually bloom, and gathering seeds from them is very easy. No two plants look alike, but their colors vary considerably.

Review:

We own a Wedding Event Center in Independence Missouri. We grew these the summer of 2018. They were SPECTACULAR ! We had many wonderful comments on our Coleus at the event center. We planted out about 75 to start with and ran out of pots. The seedlings set for TWO month in the seed tray until I planted out a second set the First of July. Both sets did well.
