Rainbow Mix Coleus

Plants are about one foot high and ideal for borders and as houseplants. The rainbow variety is probably the most popular of coleus and this mixture includes the complete color band, from cream to deep scarlet. They do need to have the flower buds removed if you want them to stay compact. If they bloom they tend to become leggy.
