Coleus are having a resurgence of popularity with new and exciting varieties that have been bred and trialled in recent years and although native to the warmer tropical climes of Asia, Coleus have proved to be versatile summer bedding plants in UK temperatures, especially in semi-shady areas of the garden.
Low maintenance and happy in a semi-shady spot, Coleus are grown for their intricate leaf patterns, striking foliage and depth of colour - Campfire gives a warm burnt orange/bronze glow of colour with a hint of pink as the new leaves emerge.
Flowers are insignificant and lilac in colour but are best snipped off, as once Coleus have flowered, they tend to die off.
Use as a statement plant in a pot or as part of a combination in mixed plantings. Coleus can be grown successfully as houseplants.
