Kong Series Mix Coleus

10 reviews

Colossal leaves, the biggest we have seen for coleus and coming in a kaleidoscope of colors. If you want a stunning, vibrant shade garden or container planting with low maintenance, this mix fills those needs, awarding you with long-lasting foliage all season. When the first frost is nearing here we like to take cuttings and dig up some plants, bringing them indoors for colorful houseplants. Well branched plants start out in the seedling stage, no pinching back needed, and form upright mounds 18” wide by 20” high.

15 seeds

Beautiful large coleus

I never grew coleus from seed and when I saw the package with a little dropper for the seeds, I wasn't sure how well these would work out. Every seed I planted grew a beautiful plant. They are growing well in both sun and mostly shade.

Look great

The Kong coleus germinated well and look great. I just transplanted them into the garden and they look really nice with a nice variety of color in the different plants

Great Germination

Switched to Pinetree from the larger seed companies that I have used for years, primarily because I like the small seed packet size. I am pleased with the packaging, the information ON the packaging, and the fact that I got 100% germination on the first 3 varieties I started in half the MINIMUM days projected on the package. No guarantees that my incompetence won’t **** the seedlings at some point, but that's on me. I'll likely amend the rating once I see the grown plant (hopefully).
