Kong Series Mix Coleus

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
