The Coleus Rainbow Blend, 'Coleus hybridus', is one of the best plants for adding masses of colorful foliage to shady areas. Great in north facing flower beds and around shade trees. It is also an excellent houseplant that will add color on those dreary winter days. The foliage colors are white, bronze, gold, copper, yellow, pink, red, and purple. Insignificant flower spikes appear in late summer.Coleus prefers shade but will withstand filtered sun. The Rainbow blend will perform in average garden soils and likes to be kept moist but not soggy. Coleus are very frost sensitive so plant after last average frost date. Pinch back plants to encourage fullness and pinch back flowers to encourage foliage. Rainbow Blends are great for pots and planters.
