When it comes to foliage, Coleus tops every gardener’s go-to list. These lovely plants give us bold green and deep purple (sometimes red) ridged leaves and are the ultimate low-maintenance foliage. It’s commonly called the flame nettle and is native to Malaysia.

Generally, Coleus likes being potted and placed in full sun. It also needs to be watered often but is known to grow well in almost any condition. It’s also as happy as a houseplant as it is in the garden.

Coleus is a totally laid-back plant and the perfect way to add some easy to care for greenery to your collection. 

Please note that we have a mixture of red and green-leaved plants and will endeavour to deliver your preferred colour, but we can't guarantee that a given colour will be avaialable.
