Coleus: The most versatile annual ever?
While, in truth, we love all plants over here, we’re going to submit the claim that Coleus might be the most versatile annual ever! Why? Well….
-It comes in an ever-increasing collection of swoon-worthy color combinations (it’s addicting, really)
-You can find a cultivar to match any plant combination you dream up (the perfect plant-cessory…)
-It thrives in both sun and shade (is that too much to ask for?)
-It can handle hot summer weather (a necessity for Richmond summers!)
-It’s touted for its foliage, but it also flowers (that’s like buy one, get one free, right?)
-It makes a huge impact in your flower beds or containers (love the big-bang-for-your-buck factor!)
-It is so easy to grow! (the beginning gardener’s best friend!)
-And while in no way relevant to their versatility, coleus cultivars have some of the coolest
names! (who doesn’t want to be the one who gets to name plants? or crayon colors…)
With all that said, here’s a little eye candy to support our bold claim; you tell us if you agree!
