This is coleus. This snap was taken in the greenhouse in early spring. In some parts of the world coleus is an annual. In other parts of the world, I imagine it is a nuisance. This snap shows lots of different varieties. I'm sorry, I don't remember any of their names.
Coleus like heat. Some varieties don't do well in bright sun,
but there are new sun-loving varieties too.
Coleus enjoy moist soil, but can dry out a little between waterings.
Around here we use them as accent plants, or as a border.
They make quite a spectacle in big planters.The plants shown
here are about 3"-4" tall and ready to be planted into a 4" or 6" pot and made ready for the wholesale trade. I like coleus because they will put on a show in your garden, and expect very little in return!
