Annual. Add some gorgeous, deep color
to shady areas with this striking
coleus. This compact, bushy plant
brings a hot blush to the front of
the border with hues of purple,
red and black. The unusual colors
combined with the puckered leaf
shapes provide ultimate visual
interest. It’s a perfect accent
to any bright colored leaves or
flowers. Wonderful in containers,
inside or out!
