We have discovered an amazing new series of Coleus to add to our annual foliage plant collection! Although Coleus is well known as a foliage shade plant and has been grown forever, it is only in recent years that varieties have been bred that thrive in sun.
The FlameThrower series of Coleus not only showcases several bold and unique foliage colours and patterns, but also thrives in any light conditions, ranging from full sun to full shade. The plant growth habit is compact to medium at 12 -18” in height, making gorgeous mounds that are easy to manage and great for mixed container combinations.
The FlameThrowers make excellent ‘fillers’ (remember the ‘thriller’, ‘filler’ and ‘spiller’ rule) and combine well with virtually any other flowering or foliage annual. Pick from the bold and beautiful Cajun Spice (orange with yellow edges), Chipotle (burgundy with lime edges), Salsa Roja (deep red) and Salsa Verde (lime green). Stop by soon to see how we have used these terrific varieties to add great texture and colour to our mixed planters.
