Great landscape-type coleus are wonderful in both full sun and shade locations. Will grow approximately knee-high. These plants are excellent for combination baskets or landscapes. They mix well with Verbena Calibrachoa and Bacopa since all of these varieties have similar cultural needs. We offer a wide variety of Coleus. These are also offered as unrooted cuttings.

Growing Tips

Your unrooted cuttings will arrive freshly cut. You will need to plant them immediately and begin a misting cycle to root the cuttings. This will leech the soil of nutrients, so during the propagation phase use a constant feed of 1/3 the normal recommended dosage of fertilizer until well rooted.

All of our varieties love full sun except as noted in our catalog. All are vigorous pinch as needed to control stretch. Plant 4 plugs per 10in basket and 1 plug per 4in pot pinch once. Downy mildew symptoms are a tiny gray fuzz on back of leaves that cause leaf damage and lower leaves to fall inspect often.

Unrooted Cuttings

Cuttings vary in size between different plant families, but most can be described as tip cuttings (ivy are leaf-and-eye stem cuttings not tips) that stick nicely in small plug trays such as the 105-plug tray we use (some varieties are better suited for a 50 cell tray, i.e. Angelwing Begonia, Bougainvillea, Setcrecea, etc.). Please do not order unrooted cuttings unless you are an experienced propagator with mist systems and proper temperature control.
