Coleus - Gardening
July 30, 2016 8:22am CST
Coleus are plants with colorful foliage. They are easy to grow and care for. They are low maintenance plants and make a good color statement in your garden. There are lovely ornamental plants. Just a small cutting is enough to start another plant. In the rainy season most of the flowers in my garden are sadly battered and washed out by the non stop rains.. Coleus come in pretty handy during those times to add color to my garden. These plants are native to Asia, Australia and Africa. Their colors look even more brighter when the get a few hours of sun everyday. There are so many varieties and hybrids of coleus that everyone can find something to their liking. This picture here is of my favorite coleus. Do you have coleus in your garden? do you like them?
